  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp (15 mL) dried Italian seasoning
  • 10 oz (300 g) fettuccine pasta
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 4-5 small mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp (30 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) pepper
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
  • 2 cups (500 mL) milk
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) 10% half-and-half cream
  • 1 cup (250 mL) shredded Canadian Mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) grated Canadian Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) sour cream

Directions

1. In a large skillet, melt 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the butter over medium-high heat; sauté chicken, garlic, and Italian seasoning for about 8 minutes or until chicken is browned and no longer pink inside. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.

2. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook pasta according to package directions for about 10 minutes until al dente.

3. Return the skillet to medium-high heat and add butter. Sauté onions and mushrooms over medium-high heat, for about 5 minutes or until onions are translucent. Sprinkle with flour; stir in pepper and salt and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Gradually stir in milk and cream; cook, stirring, for about 5 minutes or until creamy, smooth, and thick. Remove from heat; stir in Mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.

4. Drain pasta and return to pot. Pour in the sauce, reserved chicken, tomatoes, and sour cream and toss to coat.
