Main Ingredients:

2 skinless chicken breasts, cut in slices about 1/4 " thick then in bite-size morsels

6 or so leaves of sage

1 cup broccoli florets, steamed (optional)

1 red pepper, seeded, coarsley diced, sautéed in olive oil or butter (optional)

8 oz pasta (fettucine, tagliatelle) or 12 oz (3/4 package) penne, etc. (Fettucine is heavier).

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature (or 2 of olive oil for sauteeing the chicken and 2 of butter for the sauce)

1 cup freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano (Parmesan), at room temperature, plus extra cheese to pass at the table

1 1/4 cup heavy cream

salt and freshly ground pepper (use white pepper if you have it)

a pinch of grated nutmeg


Cooking Preparation of the Recipe:

SET the pasta water to boil.



IN a pan large enough to hold all the ingredients, sauté the chicken in 2 tablespoons of butter or good olive oil until lightly browned. Set aside in a warm place.



COOK the pasta. Remember to reserve some of the cooking water to moisten your chicken Alfredo if it is too dry.



ADD the heavy cream, 2 tablespoones of butter and 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese to the same pan. Keep cooking on low-medium heat, stirring occasionally until the mixture reduces slightly and thickens.



ADD pinch of nutmeg, 3 - 4 leaves of sage, salt and pepper to taste. Stir.



ADD the cooked chicken and optional ingredients and mix again. Taste for salt. Add a TBSP or two of the pasta cooking water if too dry.



ADD the cooked and well-drained pasta to the sauce. Mix well with a wooden spoon.



TURN into a warmed serving bowl, or directly onto warmed plates.



VARIATION: Turn pasta mixture into a baking dish, sprinkle 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese on top, and set under broiler for about 30 seconds, until flecked with brown (2nd picture).



PASS grated Parmesan at the table.
