Chicken and Sun Dried Tomato Pasta

Chicken and Sun Dried Tomato Pasta

As fall begins, my family is craving heartier meals and honestly, I am too. Pasta is always a winner and Chicken and Sun Dried Tomato Fettuccine is a regular on our weekly roster. Sliced chicken thighs, wild mushrooms and tender, sweet sun dried tomatoes come together in this pasta recipe for the perfect balance of healthy, hearty, sweet and savory.

I partnered with Canadian company, Sardo Foods again this month. (Remember this month’s amazing Fire Roasted Sweet Pepper Soup, Easy Greek Quinoa Salad and that luscious Artichoke Panini? All made with Sardo’s’ super yummy Mediterranean products!) I was excited about almost everything but the sundried tomatoes. When is the last time you had sundried tomatoes? For me it’s been awhile after being turned off by leathery, acidic and dry ones so I was happily surprised by Sardo’s tomatoes which were the complete opposite.

The Best Sun Dried Tomatoes…Really!

I opened the first container of sun dried tomatoes, tasted one and then proceeded to eat half the container. As I ate, I thought of all the dishes that would benefit from their authentic, rich and delicious flavor and texture. Sardo’s sun dried tomatoes are naturally sweet, fresh tasting and soft. They add the perfect pop of bright flavor to this chicken pasta which I’ve aptly (or uncreatively) named Chicken and Sun Dried Tomato Pasta.

Pasta Can Be Light And Comforting At The Same Time

I’ve kept the pasta light by using mostly chicken stock. I added just a bit of cream at the end to give a luxurious texture. Pasta is so delicious but if it is too heavy or rich, we tend to shy away from eating it often.

Fresh pasta is so much better than dried so I encourage you to splurge on fresh noodles when you can. Crisp fresh parsley finishes it off perfectly but fresh basil and chives will work equally well if that’s what you’ve got.

I hope you this finds you soaking up the end of summer. Cheers to September and cozy nights in with those you love.
