ReddRoxx Recipes: Creamy Chicken & Shrimp Mafaldine Pasta
Pasta dishes are one of my all-time favorite go-tos when I have a taste for something thats hearty and filling. Pasta is a comfort food that's pretty difficult to mess up and you can really get creative with them. For this dish, I used Mafaldine pasta which is in the ribbon family. I also used Grated Parmigiano Reggiano. Did you know that this is a legally protected class of cheese that can only bear the name is if the entire process of making the cheese took place in a specific region of Italy? According to parmigianoreggiano.us, it must also include only three natural ingredients that have been used for over 900 years and must be aged for at least 12 months before it can be sold in stores! This cheese lends to the unique and complex flavor of this dish but can be a little pricey however you can substitute with a simple grated parmesan as well. Chicken: Garlic Powder Onion powder Sea salt Pepper Paprika Turmeric Olive oil For later: Roasted Red Pepper Onions Chopped Season chicken, add olive oil, mix cover and let rest.
