Thinking Outside the Noodle – Part II of II – Fresh Rosemary Garlic Fettuccine with Grilled Chicken, Broccoli and Peppers in Cream Sauce

Rosemary Garlic Fettuccine Cream Sauce

Last week I posted my recipe for Fresh Rosemary Garlic Fettuccine.  The fresh fettuccine pairs well with this recipe of grilled chicken and fresh vegetables in a cream sauce.  Did I say … it’s deliciously decadent?  It is … rich, creamy and delicious.  After making the broccoli cheddar soup and this I think it’s time to go back to some healthy lower fat eating!  Enjoy … you can splurge once in a while.

Grilled Chicken & Fresh Vegetables in a Cream Sauce

Ingredients

  • Fresh Garlic Rosemary Fettuccine Noodles
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 cup sliced green onions
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups cubed grilled chicken
  • 1 Orange or Red Pepper

  • Grape tomatoes – halved
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • Cook pasta until al dente.  Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute mushrooms and onions in butter for 4-5 minutes or until tender. Add wine or broth and garlic. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 5 minutes.

Stir in cream. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 4-5 minutes or until heated through.

    • Thank you so much! Yes, those are my ravioli in the header. Off hand I’m not exactly sure what I stuffed them with. I have made so many different ravioli. They may be posted under the “pasta” category. I’m thinking those were sausage stuffed or possibly butternut squash, which is one of my favorite.
