Pasta is one meal that can never go wrong: Jollof pasta, White pasta and stew, Alfredo pasta, Pasta and sauce. Whatever way you decide to make pasta. Pasta is a light meal that can be eaten after a long day or time of fasting because it is very light and nutritious.

Alfredo is a creamy sauce made from butter and cheese. You can eat Alfredo pasta for lunch or dinner.

INGREDIENTS

  • Fettuccine pasta
  • Boneless and skinless chicken breast
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Black pepper
  • Vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves Garlic (Minced)
  • Unsalted butter
  • 1 cup Heavy cream
  • ¼ tbsp Nutmeg
  • Parsley (Chopped)

METHOD

  1. Put the pasta in a pot of water, add a tsp salt and cook for 8-10 minutes, then drain and set aside. (Leave some water in a bowl).
  2. Wash and pat both sides of the chicken breasts with paper towels then season with ¾ tbsp salt and ¼ tbsp pepper. (I also season with curry)
  3. Heat oil in a non-stick pan for 2 minutes, then carefully place the chicken breasts and fry for 5-7 minutes on both sides. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and let it cool for 3 minutes. Slice into ½-inch thick slices and cover with aluminum foil. 
  4. Melt the butter into the same pan used to fry the chicken, pour the garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Whisk in the cream, nutmeg, cheese, ¼ tbsp salt and ¼ tbsp pepper and simmer for 4 minutes. If the sauce is too thick, pour 1 cup of the reserved pasta water and stir.
  5. Put the pasta into a pot, add the sauce and stir thoroughly. Pour the meal into serving bowls, top up with chicken slices and garnish with parsley and cheese if desired.

Enjoy.
