Fettucine with Spicy Almond Butter Sauce

February 19, 2010

This is inspired by a recipe in Food and Wine magazine. Usually, when I think of almond butter pasta, it is an Asian-style pasta, but this is a garlic-y, Italian-style, which is a nice change.


Chicken Basil Pasta

September 6, 2009

We had leftover chicken that needed to be used, so I invented this dish. It was really good.

3 cloves garlic
3 sundried tomatoes in oil, chopped
1-2 Tbsp oil from sundried tomatoes or olive oil
Around 1 cup leftover cooked chicken (you could use more if you have it)
Handful of fresh basil, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
1/2-1 cup soft goat cheese
8 oz Tinkyada brown rice pasta (penne, spirals, etc.)

Cook pasta according to package directions.
Meanwhile, mince garlic. Saute in the oil. Add chicken,sundried tomatoes, and fresh tomatoes. When tomatoes are softened and chicken is heated, mix in goat cheese. (You could leave it out if you can’t have goat dairy; I would use more oil in that case). Stir until cheese has melted and combined with the other ingredients. Add basil. Toss the chicken/sauce mixture with the pasta, and serve.
