One of my father’s favourite dishes is Fettucini Alfredo. So, for father’s day I decided to make him Fettucini Alfredo. Unfortunately for me, some complications along the way meant that I had tagliatelle at my disposal instead. I had to improvise. Luckily, my house is always well stocked with fresh ingredients which made the improvisation a lot easier. This is what I ended up with: Chicken Tagliatelle & Insalata Caprese.
The chicken portion of the dish is quite simple. It is just pan fried chicken finished with some parsley. The caprese salad which separates the deconstructing of a Chicken Alfredo is classically made and finished with some balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and basil that just became harvestable from my garden. The tagliatelle is cooked al dente and lightly coated with some white sauce and then finished with some ground black pepper.
He was quite the happy father.
