Last night I went all out on myself and made some pasta with a special sauce. I have recently come to enjoy making pasta. For a long time I ate a lot of meat as a main potion to a meal, so I have wanted to branch out and try some new things. As I’m still not a big veggie fan, pasta is a good solution.
What I have here is Sacchettini, which are stuffed with chicken and bacon. The pasta was precooked and only took about 5 minutes in the boiling water. Once the pasta was to the tenderness of my desire, which maybe more than average, I drained them and let them cool. By the way, I think this dish by itself with only a little butter would be great. As you bite into this pasta you taste buds exploded as them first taste the slightly salted past and chicken, and then as if it is a surprise in the middle you taste the bacon. The bacon adds that salty good taste we all love.
But I had other plans for this dish. I wanted to make a delightful creamy sauce to mix with the pasta and that is what I did. I have never been a fan of marinara sauce so I took a page from the Philly Cream Cheese commercials and through in a couple spoon fulls of plain cream cheese. I added in the cream cheese once the marinara is already heated up, so that it melts almost as soon as I add it in. The sauce then turns in to a wonderful creamy orange.
Finally place the size portion of pasta you desire on a plate, add the sauce onto the pasta and top with some green onion chives.
