Chicken and Zucchini with Pappadelle Noodles Alfredo

We are still sticking to that menu! I did add Zucchini to tonight's dinner. This was so darn good. The noodles were homemade, had them in the freezer. The sauce is our favorite for an Alfredo sauce. It is from Bon Appetit back in 2003. No cream. Just unsalted butter, salt, cheese and pasta water. Yeah, this was really good. I cut the chicken breast into julienne slices and dredged them in flour. Sauteed the chicken in 1/2 butter and 1/2 olive oil. Once cooked transferred the chicken from the pan to a dish, a pie dish to be exact, and I sauteed the zucchini. I put the cooked zucchini with the chicken, wiped out the pan and melted the butter for the sauce. I put the cooked noodles into the saute pan, using tongs, was not about to put a colander in the sink, and added the cheese and some of the pasta water. The cooked chicken and the zucchini were added to the pan and it was all tossed together. I did add a little more pasta water at this point.
Here is the link to the original recipe with the ingredient amounts. Enjoy!

They know the Christmas tree will arrive tomorrow!
