Fiesta Friday #18: Pasta-time!

Hi guys!

I told myself to wait for a later Fiesta Friday because of my finals… But I couldn’t wait! It just seems too much fun!!!

I am SO excited about my first Fiesta Friday! It was the lovely Jhuls from thenotsocreativecook who invited me for this awesome party πŸ˜€
Thank you so much Jhuls!
And ofcourse thank you so much to everyone who made this party happen!

When I thought about what recipe to share with you, the one thing that popped straight into my head was: PASTA!
But what kind of pasta…
I’ll share my favourite pasta of all times! It’s a pasta with chicken and mushrooms ^^
It even beats my ex all time favourite lasagne!
I have to say, it is my boyfriend (who happens to be a cook) who makes it for me. So it’s actually his recipe πŸ™‚
But I’ve got the approval to blog about it (isn’t that sweet πŸ˜‰ ).
He thinks of it as ‘just pasta’ but for me, it’s heaven! I have to warn you: you WILL overeat yourself!My boyfriend litteraly has to stop me because I just can’t…

It’s a very easy and customized recipe. So, I’m sorry for all of you who need to know the exact amount of ingredients because I can’t really give you that :s He cooks with his feelings, not with grams.

What do you need for 4 persons:
(Don’t worry, every person gets to take a second round and if you’re lucky, there will be someting left)
– 1000g pasta (any pasta will do, choose your favourite!)
– chicken (we use about 1 portion of chicken from our supermarket)
– mushrooms (we use 1 pack of muchrooms)
– 0.5 l cream (use the culinary cream with about 20 – 30% fat => keeps it healthy πŸ˜‰ )
– herbs: he uses ckicken herbs and parsley (he sometimes adds whatever he feels like…)
– a little bit of salt and pepper
– cornflour

How to:
Cook your pasta while you bake the chicken.
If the chicken is baked, put in the mushrooms.
If that looks good, add the cream. Oh yes, the chicken and mushrooms will be some sort of sauce πŸ™‚
Don’t forget to add your herbs, salt and pepper.
To thicken the sauce, you might have to add a little bit of cornflour.
When the pasta is done (you can use it if it’s all dente), add it to the sauce. Or add the sauce to the pasta if your pan is too small.
Now mix it all together so the sauce is everywhere πŸ™‚

p.s. what I really like about this recipe is the fact that the sauce sticks to the pasta πŸ™‚ So yummy!


I hope you’ll like it as much as I do πŸ˜€
And remember: Don’t eat it alone! You’ll need someone to stop you.

Have a delicious day! ❀

oh and Fiesta Friday: I’m so ready!!

Welcome to your first Fiesta Friday, your dish looks delicious so I have stolen it for my scrapbook.
