Delicious fettuccini pasta slathered in a thick, creamy sauce and topped with tender chicken breast strips…what could be more comforting after a long day of work than a plateful of this rich comfort food that’s easy to prepare, but tastes like the mouthwatering main of a fancy Italian restaurant? Similar to the beloved carbonara, this creamy pasta recipe makes use of the buttery notes of white wine, thyme, garlic and lemon zest to add a touch of nuance to the béchamel sauce. Topped with parmesan cheese and packed with button mushrooms, this is definitely a meal to look forward to when you’re in much need of treating yourself. Serve this with garlic bread and a glass of white wine left from the bottle you used to transport yourself to Italy and its sunny surroundings—you’ll feel much better after a second helping of this amazing dish.
