This dish is worthy of company. We made it pretty much as written -- using a little less garlic to accommodate a non-garlic-loving guest. Australia doesn't sell Italian salad dressing powder, so I used two tablespoons of Italian salad dressing. You didn't say how much pasta. We used 500 grams (1 pound).
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast (cut into 1-inch pieces)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 5 mushrooms, sliced
- 6 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 shallot, finely chopped
- 1 medium onion (chopped)
- 2 teaspoons powdered Italian salad dressing
- 1 roasted red pepper, slivered
- 2 cups asparagus, cooked and cut in 1-inch length
- 1⁄2 cup evaporated low-fat milk
- 1 cup chicken bouillon
- 1⁄2 cup low-fat cream cheese
- 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
- fettuccine pasta, noodles cooked at dente
