I ended up making a pasta dish last night. It had a creamy base using ricotta cheese, milk, Parmesan, wine, olive oil, and fresh herbs. To that I added chicken, bacon, sauteed mushrooms and onions, tomatoes, scallions, etc...and served it over fresh linguini.
I made this up on the fly, so there is no recipe. The family loved it...even Ben...and he is the pickiest eater I know.
Herbs are pretty
Chop them up
Chop Green onions
chop these up too...
Parmesan to be grated...this little food processor is a huge help!
Cook this until lightly browned...don't want it too crispy for this kind of dish...
Not too browned, but just right.
After the bacon is done add the chicken and brown well on both sides. Cook until inside is just done...
Chop it up too...
Saute the onions until browned
Saute the mushrooms. In this shot I added some red wine after the mushrooms browned up well. I also added some fresh chopped garlic(not shown).
How they look after all the wine cooks off
Ricotta cheese...the start of my base
Adding in other ingredients to base...
What the stuff looks like after all ingredients are added
