This is a recipe I recreated from a simple pasta dish we had in Italy.  Phoebe loved it so much that she demanded I make it when we got back home.  My version is quick and easy to make but utterly delicious – as is all good Italian food.

All you need is some chicken, pasta, garlic, butter, extra virgin olive oil and some parsley (or other herb).  For the calorie conscious you can reduce the amount of butter and replace it with more olive oil but the richness of the butter really makes the sauce for this pasta.



Ingredients (serves 2):

500g Chicken Breast

350g Pasta (Spaghetti or Linguine)

4 Cloves Garlic

100g Butter (unsalted)

Handful of Parsley

Extra Virgin Olive Oil



1.  Dice the chicken breast and thinly slice the garlic.

2.  Boil a large pan of salted water and heat (medium-high) a saute pan with two tablespoons of the olive oil.

3.  Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions.

4.  Add the garlic to the saute pan as soon as the oil is up to temperature.  Fry for about 1-2 minutes then add in the chicken.

5.  As soon as the chicken is cooked through, add the butter and allow it to melt in the pan.  Adjust seasoning as required.

6.  Once the butter is melted, add in some chopped parsley.  Drain the pasta, add it to the pan and mix well.

7.  Taste the pasta, adjust seasoning if required and serve.  Crack some fresh black pepper and drizzle some olive oil on top (optional).
