Recipe For Creamy Chicken Pasta

I have recipes that I want to try saved all over the place. Recently I have taken to securing them to the side of the fridge, and out of site, with my Yuppiechef magnets. Sadly, I didn’t think of this when I started getting the magnets and so my first, second and third lots of magnets have been donated out. But, I digress. Last year Dave and I attended a pasta evening hosted by Fair Lady. One of the recipes we made was for a pasta dish using smoked chicken. I am not a big fan of smoked chicken, it has something to do with the texture and not the taste as much so I decided to keep the recipe for when asparagus were in season. Funnily enough, we went through a lot of asparagus before I managed to get chicken breasts out of the freezer at the same time as I had asparagus in the fridge. Given that I was on leave when this happened I decided to make my creamy chicken pasta with freshly made fusilli. I was given a Kitchen Aid pasta extruder for my birthday last year and frankly I am not that impressed. Other than the spaghetti I have not had much joy with extruding pasta. My dough was perfect but the shapes would not form properly. Only one twisted and I am still waiting to hear back from Kitchen Aid what possibly could have caused this. However, the pasta itself tasted really good, and the creamy chicken pasta sauce was perfect.

  2. This is a very appetizing classical Spring dish! But I love to use the more delicate white asparagus in here, they have way more flavour! Belgium is know for them!

  8. I *adore* my KitchenAid but I’ve never bought any attachments. How annoying that you haven’t had any luck with your pasta attachment. Still, I bet it still tastes delish 🙂

  9. You may not have been happy with the way the pasta looked but I think it looks amazing!!! It looks professionally homemade, not store bought swirls but a gentle twist. LOVE IT!
    You are so clever, the sauce looks amazing too… I really have to make “Pasta Making” a goal for this year.

  18. It is so disappointing when you get something which doesn’t work like it should. Hopefully Kitchen Aid can sort it out for you.
    This is a lovely meal. I love the addition of asparagus.
    Have a lovely afternoon Tandy.
