From My Kitchen ~ Chicken Fettucini

Spending so much time in Chicagoland, we have a real appreciation for anything Italian. This is one of our family favorites!

1 10oz pkg frozen, chopped spinach
2 cups cooked, diced chicken
1 pkg 16 oz fettucini (fresh or boxed)
1/2 cup butter
8 oz heavy cream
Large can of parmesan/romano cheese

Cook spinach according to directions on package. Set aside.

Bring large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the fettucini, following package directions on the package, stirring occasionally.

While the fettucini is cooking, slowly heat the butter and about 1/2 the cream in a small saucepan. Slowly add the cheese to the butter and cream, stirring constantly; add remaining cream. This will be very thick and creamy.

Drain the pasta in colander; add spinach and drained chicken into a large bowl. Slowly add the alfredo sauce, constantly turning over the mixture.

Of course, serve with fresh italian bread & butter and a side of fresh steamed vegetables! Yummy. On the day we made this meal, I was all out of fetticini noodles so I substituted tri-colored rotini. Everyone loved it!

Enjoy! ~ Lea

Lordy, that looks good! I'm going to the grocery store right now for fetticini! By the way, I meant to tell you last time I love the music! It sounds like a CD I have called "Smoky Mountain Hymns" that features the hammer dulcimer. (One of my favorite instruments!)

How funny, Katy ~ That is EXACTLY what my children say!

Miss Farm Chick, Smoky Mountain Hymns is one of my very favorite CDs. I could listen to it all day long! Someday I would love to play the dulcimer myself.

Thanks, Mom! I think you'll really like this recipe but I'm not so sure about Dad ??? Love you!
