Found this recipe in the Woman's Day magazine, Sept 23. It is from a cook called the Seasonal Kitchen by Serge Dansereau. Linguine is rather similar to fettuccine and I would imagine any long pasta would work well. I've made this and it is delicious, quick and easy. The recipe says that basil can be swopped for parsley, but I think the basil adds another dimension to the recipe that parsley wouldn't. The left-overs, reheated the next day, taste just as nice as when first made. A keeper for sure.
Received this in email - reminds me of tamales a Honduran friend described. Since the banana plants are up & growing like crazy now I thought this is the right time to give this recipe a whirl. Given the time involved to make I plan to double recipe & freeze a lot of tamales. Received in email from gourmet-recipes-from-around-the-world. Thanks Lavender!
Lavender noted - Aluminum foil may be substituted for banana leaves.

Easy! Quick to Make! Delicious! What more could you ask for in a dish?
This could be a light main dish, or a side. You can leave out the chicken, add more or different veggies, make it spicier, or less spicy. Make it your own!
