Number of Servings: 8


    1 to 1.5 cup cream
    salt to taste
    freshly ground pepper to taste
    4 Tbsp. butter, cut into a few pieces
    freshly ground nutmeg to taste
    16 oz. pasta
    1/4 c. grated Parmigiano-Reggiano

    1 boneless chicken breast or 2 boneless chicken thighs
    1/2 tsp. paprika
    1/8 tsp. salt
    1/8 tsp. ground pepper
    1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
    1/4 tsp. cumin
    1/4 tsp. thyme
    1/8 tsp. onion powder
    1/8 tsp. garlic powder


Bring a pot of water to a boil.

In a pan big enough to toss the pasta, bring the cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg to a simmer, then lower the heat and whisk or swirl in the butter, a chunk at a time. Turn off the heat.

Boil and strain your pasta. Toss the pasta in the cream. Sprinkle three quarters of the cheese over the pasta, tossing it to melt and distribute the cheese. Add a little more cream or milk if you’ve let it get too thick.

Mix together the all of the herbs/spices. Rub 1 tsp. of oil into each piece of chicken, and then press the spice mixture into both sides.

Place the chicken breasts in a super hot, dry nonstick skillet. Cook about 5 minutes per side, or until chicken is cooked through.

Serve, sprinkling additional cheese on each.
