What would life be without this ultra delicious God sent Gift for us :)
Pasta is in more than 300 forms and shapes, but mostly made with the
same ingredients, I buy the whole meal ones as they are healthier and very good
Fettuccine is flat narrow pasta usually made with cheese sauce and
butter and lots of parmesan on the top.
I always do my own variations according to my wish and taste, so I just
added what I thought would be yummy and I made it on a quick track and it
turned out outstandingly scrumptious.
I can recommend it to all who love pasta and want to make some think
which is not time consuming then this is the right one!
I used fresh cream cheese in it and made it in herb butter, this is
butter where dry herbs like dil, thyme rosemary and chives are already mixed in
and at times some garlic too. This gives a very nice creamy taste.
I have used the normal no brand cheese, you can take Exquisa or any
equivalent, it is perfect.
What I did was, I just started off all at the same time, I set the pot of water to boil the
Pasta, here I must mention that I broke the narrow strips
in two and three as I like it in short form :) So…. then I had some chicken
pieces which I had made for tikka, had my cabbage and carrots cut for salad so
I used that and of course my fresh basil leaves a must!
While the pasta was ready, I melted a small cube of herb butter in the
pan, added the chicken cubes and fried till the pieces were done, then added
the cabbage and the carrots and twisted and tossed till it gave a bit fried
Mixed in 3 table spoon of fresh cream and let it melt and mix well,
sprinkled few drops of Tabasco, by the time it was quite creamy. I just
sprinkled some black pepper from the mill, dint need any salt as the butter was
I saved the extra Cals of the parmesan cheese as i had already added
cream cheese, just mixed in some basil leaves and some for the top, they give
such a nice aroma and are such a must for pasta, I simply love it and my
kitchen basil plant is growing so nicely, I am full smiles looking at it daily.
Now because I have written the whole process of what I did, I will
mention the ingredients below so you have a slight idea of things. I made
around 2 small plates so if you are making more, then double or triple the
ingredients to get the best result.
150 gram pasta
3 tbs fresh cream cheese
1 cube of herb butter (40 gram)
1 cup of shredded cabbage and carrot together
½ piece of chicken breast in cubes
Black pepper form the mill to taste
1-You need 1 liter water for each 100 gram so they have enough space to
2-Never pour cold chill water after draining; best is to drain out and
keep covered till you have to use it
3-don’t add oil or butter in the boiling water, always drop on the pasta
4- never over boil too soft, always take off as they are a bit firm to bite, those taste wonderful!
That’s it, simple, easy, quick, now make and tell me how you liked it :)
