Chicken Cheese Pasta! - Salt and Sour

Chicken Cheese Pasta!

 

20151001_210017

I am on the HUMBLE mode while drafting this post. Because, I have done not many experiments with pasta. Jebu is a BIG fan of pasta and what I make for her is just some pasta in a cheesy soup because she is a big fan of soft cheese. For her, it is a no veggie pasta for she finds it difficult to pick and throw them every time ?. She just hates any veggie in it and so I don’t add any.

I have had pasta from the famous Pastamania. But I am not flattering myself when I say my tastebuds were comforted better by my version when compared to the branded one. May be because I prefer the rich flavors when compared to the smooth ones. But whoever tasted turned out with a real thumbs up for this. Again, I am not sure if this is the proper way to make a pasta dish but I can assure you that if you give it a try, you will never regret. It was a wonderful, filling and nutritious dinner we had it that day. 

Ingredients:

  1. Boneless chicken fillet- 250 grms chopped to bite sized pieces
  2. Cooked pasta- 3 servings
  3. Shallots- 3 numbers chopped to thin circles 
  4. Garlic- 5 cloves chopped very finely.
  5. Milk-1/4 cup
  6. Your favorite veggies sliced to bite sized pieces- 1/2 cup or more.
  7. Cheese slices- 2 
  8. Salt to taste 
  9. Tomato ketchup-1/2 tsp
  10. Pepper powder to taste
  11. Any italian seasoning
  12. Butter- 1 stick

Method:

  • Cook pasta in boiling water with little salt. Strain the cooked pasta. Keep aside.
  • In a pan, melt some butter and caramelise shallots and garlic.
  • Add the chicken pieces and stirfry until cooked. Add enough salt.
  • Add the veggies and stirfry until they start becoming soft. Add the tomato ketchup now.
  • Pour in milk and add the cheese slices. Let the cheese melt into the mixture.
  • Add pepper powder and the Italian seasoning. Keep boiling until the sauce thickens and becomes creamy.
  • Pour the sauce over the pasta and mix well.
  • Serve hot.

Tips:

  • If you like a soupy pasta, adjust the sauce consistency by adding more milk. Here I have made dry.
  • Adding a few drops of oil while cooking pasta prevents it from sticking to each other.
  • Adding lemon zest while making the sauce will give a refreshing flavour to the pasta.
  • Serve immedietly as the cheese may thicken on cooling.
  • Vegetarians may make the veggie cheesy pasta by omiting chicken from this recipe. Adding a little vegetable broth with the veggies will give a great taste to this pasta. 

Enjoy cooking!
