One of my favorite pasta dishes comes from a popular spot here in town called The Bistro. It's a spicy cream sauce with chicken and sausage over fettucine noodles. I love it, my family loves it. I am hungry for it now!
I made my own version of the recipe...and my family likes mine better.
I'd love to hear what you think if you decide to try it.
4 Chicken breasts (can be cooked already but I usually start with uncooked)
1 lb Pork Sausage (I like the flavor of Farmland for this recipe...it's the cheapest around here to)
2-4 Tblsp minced garlic (I use the jarred kind)
About 24 oz heavy cream
4 Tablespoons blackening spice (Shawn's recipe below)
2 oz. olive oil
4-6 oz chicken stock, or use the jar called 'Better Than Bouillon', which is a thick, heavy paste you can dilute with a little water
white wine (1/2 cup, optional...last time I made this we didn't have any wine so I skipped it altogether and liked it every bit as well)
Saute chicken and sausage (you'll want to cut this into bite sized pieces or small chunks) in olive oil. Once this is cooked, you'll want to drain alot of the fat...not all of it. If you use white wine, add this to the pan and deglaze. Add heavy cream and reduce slightly. Add blackening spice to taste and chicken stock. Stir and serve over hot fettucine noodles with a salad and crispy bread. It's so good!
