This came to me one night when I was craving gnocchi. I let it bounce around in my head for a couple of weeks before I made it. My husband swears it was definitely worth the wait. The sauce is creamy and smooth, coating the chicken and gnocchi with a wonderful pesto flavor without the oiliness of straight pesto. Try it with garlic bread or multi-grain bread and butter.
My brother is a bachelor and even though he cooks for just one, he makes awesome full course meals. He got this recipe from a friend and I had to have it! I have taken this to potluck dinners and have been asked for the recipe. Simple comfort food.
Creamy homemade alfredo sauce, fresh cheese ravioli and a luscious pumpkin-sage sauce combine for this quick and easy meal! Great served with a crisp green salad and a crusty baguette, -or- may be served as a starter. Notes: This dish from the Mantua region of Northern Italy is traditionally eaten on Christmas Eve. You can add a bit of fruit chutney, and sub pistachios for the pine nuts. Enjoy!
From Bill Granger's bills Sydney Food. This dish relies on the hot pasta to warm the other ingredients, so combine immediately after draining. This works well as a quick weeknight meal. I've made many variations, using only lemon zest and juice, coriander in place of the parsley, omitting the lime and adding Parmesan, etc. . . It's easy and versatile.
Easy to make and freezes great! I would recommend baking it before freezing to blend flavours.**edited on October 24 to add instructions for Once a Month Cooking (see step 11). These is great to make during a cooking blitz especially when you are already making a traditional lasagne. It is easy to cook up some additional noodles and make this at the same time.**
This is similar to alfredo but not nearly as heavy. I found this in a magazine while on vacation at the St. Lawrence River years ago. My now married daughter is coming home for a few days and has been asking me to make this again. Well, it took a few hours to "unearth" this recipe so here it is where I can find it again quickly next time!
I make my alfredo sauce with evaporated milk from the pantry instead of fresh cream from the supermarket. My family enjoys this convenient and delicious sauce often. They claim to like it even better than restaurant alfredo sauce! I hope you'll also enjoy it.
I've gotten 8 year old boys to eat this and ask for seconds. They never knew they were eating broccoli and I didn't tell them. I adore this dish. Normally I cook with olive oil but the butter in this sauce should not be substituted. It will serve 4 as a side dish or 2 as a main course. The original recipe comes from Rozanne Gold, a favorite cookbook author.
A few weeks ago there was a post on the message boards asking "Of all of your creations, what recipe are you the most proud of?" I want to change my answer to this one!! I had a moment of brillance last night when I started dinner and this recipe is the end result. I really enjoyed eating this and felt like I had created a very simple but extremely tasty dinner. I hope whomever decides to try it enjoys it as much as we did!!
I LOVED this dished that a local Mexican restaurant called the "Hacienda" used to serve, until they changed chefs, and it was AWFUL! So, I went home and came up with my own, (better!), version! At least in MHO!! It's like a Mexican-Style Fettucini Alfredo. REALLY good!!
