And here’s another extremely easy recipe! Who said cooking was complicated? This is one more recipe from Emeril Lagasse, I just love this man, his recipes rock! He has helped me feed my friends and family for a couple of decades. You can make this Alfredo sauce with any kind of pasta, and with any kind of protein, or no protein at all of course. It’s simple and delicious, enjoy!
What you’ll need:
1 pound chicken breast
1 pound fettuccine
1 stick unsalted butter
2 cups heavy cream
1 shallot, chopped
8 ounces Parmigiano/Romano cheese
salt and pepper
Prepare the Fettuccine according to the directions on the box. Conserve 1/2 cup of the water you cook the pasta in.
Cut the chicken into small pieces and season them with Italian seasoning. Panfry the chicken in Canola oil for about 5 minutes, then cut them into smaller pieces and return them to the pan and fry for another 5 minutes.
Melt the butter in a large sauce pan. Add the chopped shallot and cook until translucent. Add heavy cream and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. After draining the pasta return it to the pot and add the 1/2 cup of pasta water back to it. Then add the cream butter mixture, chicken and cheese to it and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste . If you like, please do add more cheese! Decorate with fresh parsley if desired.Bon Apetit!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that.
All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything.
Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
