Creamy, Cheesy Pasta Deluxe


1 pound dry fettucine pasta or any long pasta
8-ounce cream cheese, cut into cubes
1 stick butter
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups grated cheese (freshly grated Parmesan cheese is my favorite)
2 small zucchini, julienned
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper (optional)
1 can premium brand chunk breast of chicken, drained
salt and pepper to taste


Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add pasta, and cook until al dente, about 10 minutes; drain. While pasta pot is boiling, cook cream cheese, butter, 2 cups grated cheese, minced garlic, zucchini and red bell pepper in a saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until veggies are tender, about 7 minutes. Season with about 1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Add drained chicken chunks and pasta, toss well to coat. Transfer to serving dish. Pass grated parmesan at the table.


Serves 4-6
