Garlic Butter Pasta
Summer, picnics, and pasta all seem to go hand in hand! And nothing beats a nice creamy pasta with excellent taste that can be eaten hot or cold. So, grab your pans and lets get started!
2 chicken breasts
1/2 cup of onions
1/4 cup of parsley
Garlic Butter Sauce Ingredients:
1/2 cup of butter (1 stick)
5 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup of olive oil
1/4 of shredded parmesan
1. Chop the chicken breasts into cubes and place in skillet. Season the breasts with chopped onions and parsley. Cook until no pink is left, remembering to stir constantly.
2. At the same time your chicken is cooking, start your pasta of choice. I used two different types of spaghetti noodles. They should both take about 10 minutes to cook. Put a pinch of salt in the water to help it boil.
3. The sauce cooks quickly and needs constant whisking once the butter melts. Put the butter in the pot with heat on and then stick the remaining ingredients in with the butter. Whisk until butter is completely melted and it is mixed well. Remove from heat until pasta and chicken are done.
4. Strain the pasta and mix it with chicken in a bowl. Warm up the sauce if it has started to solidify. Pour the sauce on the pasta and chicken and mix well. Now it should be ready to serve warm or if you want you can put in the fridge to cool. Just remember to mix before serving because the sauce falls to the bottom.
This recipe is simple and refreshing. The taste isn't over powering and it all tends to blend well. I've tried this recipe with spaghetti, angel hair, and penne pasta. The angel hair is my favorite because the thin noodle soaks up the sauce well. So, eat up and enjoy!
