What is your favourite pasta?
Is it spaghetti bolognese? Lasagne? Tuna Mornay?

Pasta dish that you "must have- must cook", at least once a month?

Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo



And as for me...

When its comes to cooking pasta ...

Its either spaghetti bolognese, pasta tuna bake, spaghetti marinara, chilli prawns pasta (summer pasta feasting) or just a simple, olive oil and lemon pasta.

I have no favourite, but if I must choose, I tend to lean towards simple 'summer' cold pasta.

After 20 over years, I wish I can give spaghetti bolognese a rest... for good! Seriously!
I am kind of 'tired' of having spaghetti bolognese. 

My taste bud is yearning for something different! A pasta dish with anything but bolognese!

A pasta dish that I have not tried, a pasta dish that everyone will be asking for an encore!

Not wanting to sit down to sift through all my cookbooks, magazines on the bookshelf... I turned to my laptop for some assistance.

Didn't take me long to chance upon this Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo recipe from Food Network (I think!).

I did my usual... a quick browse through this Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo recipe, to see if I needed anything else!

Hurray!!!
I was glad that I need not rush out to buy anything at all. I have all the ingredients to cook Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo.

But wait!

I need some meat to go with it... and I know that it will go well with chicken.

Should I poached the chicken or should I pan-seared?

better than olive garden alfredo sauce

Both poached or pan-seared chicken breasts would go well with Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo, but I settled with the later.

In my humble opinion, I think Pan-seared chicken gives in-depth flavour to this Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo.

I might try with poached chicken next, just to satisfy the curious cat in me :).


tastiest alfredo sauce ever



This simple and creamy Alfredo recipe is keeper. 

Perhaps I should use this creamy Alfredo sauce instead of Bechamel sauce :D.

Imagine.... my lasagne or pasta tuna bake will be so creamy and rich :P.

My pasta loving daughter has been asking for a repeat of this Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo
Yeah, I might cook another round of this Creamy Fettuccine Alfredo with pan-seared or poached chicken and  hopefully with some homemade fettuccine to show :P
