Tagliatelle al Pollo con Funghi: Chicken Tagliatelle with Mushrooms

29 May

We had my sister and her family over lunch today. We promised them once that we’re gonna invite them to eat our special meal. As you will see and read, we eat alot of pasta and mushroom… I love these kind of italian dishes. We won’t mind eating almost everyday some kind of pasta and add to it few mushroom. I would love to make my meals from scratch; starting by the pasta… I find fresh hand-made food, fresh pasta, fresh grated cheeses, fresh vegetables picked from the market or the farm giving the best real taste, and a dish full of nutrients. One day i will start making my own fresh pasta at home using fresh ingredients.

The following recipe is so easy to make. Once you prepare all the ingredients aside, then the rest is simple.

Mmmmm, the best ever is the smell of mushrooms frying in the pan… it’s just great… The mix of smells was surrounding us and it woke up our senses. yummi…

The meal was so satisfying so delicious, we ate till we were full…

We were happy we put the sun-dried tomatoes because they added a unique sweet taste to the meal.

Here is the recipe:

-5oo g tagliatelle

-1 kilo chicken breast

-500 g mushrooms

-500 ml heavy cream

-1 chopped onion

-a generous amout of olive oil

-6 pieces sun-dried tomatoes

-handful of chopped parsley

-2 tbsp tomato paste

-1 tbsp fresh ground nutmeg

-salt and mixed pepper

Heat the olive oil in the pan then add the minced onion. Two minutes later put the chicken cut in cubes. In the meantime cook the pasta to al dente. In another pan, cook the mushrooms with olive oil until brown then add the minced sun-dried tomatoes. When the chicken is almost cooked we add the mushrooms and then the cream and we stir, for 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper, nutmeg. And in the end stir in the tomato paste. Toss together with the drained pasta and sprinkle with the chopped parsley.

Enjoy and Buon Appetito.

      Hi, thank you for reading my blog, nutmeg is a spice, and u can find it in all supermarkets, in the spice section, and it has a very distinguish flavor, I personally love it, specially with white sauces n you can add it to chicken too.

    Yup Mimi, it was a delicious meal and the best part was cooking it. We were surrounded by variable smells that left tasty senses in our stomachs.

    I guess this meal has become a trademark and it never fails to live up to its standards whenever we cook it.

    I look forward to more yummy meals and satisfying tastes.
