I love that pasta isn't always just a tomato sauce thing.
This easy CREAMY CHICKEN FETTUCCINE recipe is a great example
and you just may end up ditching the jars of red sauce. (by
the way... I've recently discovered some of those jarred
fettuccine sauces are actually pretty good too for a last
minute deal. I'm partial to the Bartolini one and they're a
good thing to keep on hand). Top with a generous portion
of sauteed vegetables to add even more goodness to the dish
too.

Enjoy!

RECIPE: CREAMY CHICKEN FETTUCCINE

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

INGREDIENTS:
12 oz. Fettuccine, uncooked
8 oz. boneless chicken breasts, cut in 1/2-inch cubes
8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
3 tbsp. minced fresh basil or 1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. coarsely ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. paprika

DIRECTIONS:
Prepare pasta according to package directions. Coat a
large skillet with cooking spray. Add chicken and saute
over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until chicken
is golden brown and cooked through, about 4 minutes. Remove
chicken from the pan. Recoat the skillet with cooking spray.
Add the mushrooms and red pepper; saute until tender, about
5 minutes. Combine the mayonnaise, milk, cheese, basil,
pepper and paprika in a small bowl. Add to the vegetables
in the skillet. Add the chicken to the skillet. Stir constantly,
and heat over medium-low heat until thoroughly heated. When
pasta is done, drain and return it to the pot. Add the contents
of the skillet to the pot and mix well. Serve immediately.

ARE YOU MIXED UP ON PASTA?

Here some quick help on how to choose from the array of
pasta shapes, sizes, colors, and types available.

long, round pasta (e.g., spaghetti, capellini, vermicelli)
long, flat pasta (e.g., lasagna, fettuccine, linguini)
short, shaped pasta (e.g., penne, conchiglie or shells, fusilli)
stuffed pasta (e.g., ravioli, tortellini, cannelloni)

A wide range of flours and other ingredients provides
even more variety: try pasta made with semolina, whole
grains, rice, mung beans (cellophane noodles), or buckwheat.
Spinach, tomato, saffron, green tea, or beets can be added
to pasta dough for color and flavor. And all this is even
before you think about what kind of sauce to use.
