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
- 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
- 2 Cups Broccoli florets
- 1/2 cup shredded fresh parmesan cheese
- Grape tomatoes – halved
- 2 tablespoons capers, drained
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- Shredded Parmesan cheese
- 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.
- Combine flour and water until smooth; gradually add to mushroom mixture. Bring to a boil. Add broccoli, peppers and grape tomatoes. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cream. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 4-5 minutes or until heated through.
- Drain pasta. Add the pasta, chicken, parmesan cheese, capers, salt and pepper to cream sauce. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until heated through. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese if desired. Yield: 5 servings.

These look delicious! Homemade pasta makes it that much tastier.
Oh man, I want some of this! Great presentation! Love the colors.
Thanks Liz! Have to break away from my black and white every now and then. 🙂
Such lovely pasta! Also, is that your pasta in the header? What flavors are those? Very intrigued. Keep up the good work. YUM!
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.
