This was the question that was asked by my mother every day when we spoke. We both enjoyed talking about food.
She passed away in 2006. I miss someone asking that question.
So this is where I will tell whomever what I am making for dinner.
A simple recipe with delicious results. The chicken breast was cut into strips and seasoned with salt and pepper. Then sauteed in olive oil until browned on both sides. The chicken was removed from the pan and I added 5 tablespoons of butter and let that melt. Meanwhile, I was cooking the pasta in a pot of salted water. Towards the end of the cooking time, I removed about a cup and a half of the water. The cooked pasta was added to the saute pan with the butter. Parmesan cheese was added, a 1/4 of a cup at a time, along with some of the pasta water. Stirring to melt the cheese and mix it with the water to make a sauce. A total of 3/4 cups of cheese and a cup of water was used. The chicken was added back to the pan and coated with the sauce.
It was difficult not to go back for seconds or thirds...
