I just got the recipe for this white sauce off the box of fettuccine. I'm sure there's a better recipe out there, but for saying I threw this together for dinner one night it turned out pretty good. I added chicken, doubled the amount of sauce, added a little more cheese for the right consistency, and stirred in some parsley. Next time I would use whole wheat pasta. It's my latest discovery and I really like it. I just had to use up the other pasta first. I used some leftover chicken pieces I had browned in olive oil and the rest of the chicken were those grilled chicken strips from Costco that are already cooked.
12 oz. fettucine (1 package)
2 c. half and half
2 sticks butter or margarine (I used light margarine)
2 cups parmesan cheese
parsley - to taste - I probably used 2-3 tablespoons
cooked chicken pieces - to taste - I probably used 1 1/2 - 2 cups
Cook pasta according to directions and drain. Return to pot and stir in butter, half and half, and parmesan cheese until the butter and cheese melt. Stir in parsley and chicken pieces.
