Pea, Mushroom And Chicken Pasta

Continuing with the Tandy Tuesday theme initiated by Cindy and to help her use up that bottle of Vermouth I was inspired to make this meal of a Pea, Mushroom and Chicken Pasta. Vermouth adds a lovely note of aniseed to any dish. The same you would get from using fennel. This winter vegetable is great for not only adding flavour, but for using in salads, and stews.

Tandy Tuesday

My aim is to make a pasta dish once a week that only makes use of 5 ingredients, other than the pasta and seasoning. For this week’s recipe i have made use of chicken, Vermouth, mushrooms and peas. Chicken is a staple freezer ingredient. We have a free range chicken farm up the road from us. And I tend to buy in bulk from them once a month. Peas are another must have ingredient in my opinion. There is a bag of frozen peas in my freezer at all times. I have a nifty bag for cooking them in. You just pop the peas into the bag, and the bag into the microwave. And after 2 minutes, hey presto, cooked and ready to go peas. I also always have mushrooms in the fridge. They are the most versatile vegetable and can be used to bulk up any dish.
