Tagliatelle with Squid and Chicken

Yay! It was lovely off Friday, a public holiday which is my rest day from work. :) but, it will be my work day in kitchen. :p Mother in law will presume when is public holiday, cooking for the day will be fully in-charged by me. 

I normally will cook something different either mother in law seldom cook or never cook dish. Hehe any new recipe will try out by my family members. I had tried before Tagliatelle Verde with Lemon Pepper Salmon and today I would like to try out another type of cooking Tagliatelle Verde with Squid and Chicken.

Tagliatelle Verde with Squid and Chicken
Serving: 5-6 paxs

  • 400gram chicken breast, grilled it
  • 4 Sausages
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 
  • Salt and freshly milled black pepper 
  • 1/3 cup sultanas, soaked in warm water for 30 minutes 
  • 500gram tagliatelle verde
  • Squids 
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons chopped parsley leaves
  • Rosemary and Oregano (your preference, I love these 2 spices) :)
  • 1 Onions
  • White Buttons Mushrooms, sliced it
  • Cashew Nut or pine nut or chestnut, cut into small cube
I do not have oven, thus I may go for grilled the chicken.

1. Rub the chicken with the oil and sprinkle with the salt and pepper, then place it breast down in a grilled it. Grilled it till well done. 

2. Keep those juices run out from chicken. Cut into stick or cubes as your preference. Keep aside. 
3. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook Tagliatelle Verde until al dente as directed (tender but firm to bite) Drain well.

4. Add olive oil to cook the squids and use back the juice (chicken) as part of your sauce, add onions, mushrooms in the pan
.Add the rosemary, the drained sultanas and the cashew nuts. 

5. Cook and drain the pasta, and toss it with the sauce, chicken pieces, and parsley in a large warmed bowl.

Remarks: You may put some lemon juice on it to increase appetite. 

You may reduce the noddle portion if you are not big eater. William and mother in law are traditional people. They may not really enjoy or love the spice taste.
