Directions

For this recipe we used the grain/gluten-free fettuccine from Cappello’s, which had an amazing consistency. There is rice-based fettuccine available, but the consistency is not as good and you have to watch the pasta like a hawk while it cooks to make sure it’s at that perfect doneness (slightly al dente). But in the end, this recipe works just fine with both noodles. Melt the butter in a skillet on medium heat, then add the shallots. Sauté for about two minutes, until fragrant, and add the garlic and sauté for another minute or two. Add the cream, pepper, salt, and nutmeg, and reduce the heat to low and allow to gently simmer for 20 minutes. As it simmers, let’s prep the chicken.Cut up in pieces and cook in sillet or in oven. Add the sliced mushrooms to your sauce, and continue to simmer for another 10-15 minutes. As they simmer, let’s get your pasta ready. Bring a pot of slightly salted water to boil, and drop in your fettuccine. Boil for about a minute, and drain Rinse the noodles in cold water, and toss with 1 tsp olive oil to keep from sticking together. Take out your shredded/shaved hard cheese blend and have it ready for a quick dump into the dish. This is a good time to steam your broccoli and set it aside as well (tip: you want it a little on the firm side). Bring the skillet’s heat up to medium. As the sauce begins to bubble, add the pasta and gently mix it all around. Wait a minute for it to start bubbling again, and add the chicken and broccoli, tossing it all together. Add the cheese a few seconds later, and mix it all together, continuing to toss until the cheese is melted. Serve immediately!
