The button mushrooms and chicken cooked in a light, white sauce is a tasty combination. With a glass of chilled wine to accompany the dish, this Chicken Stroganoff with Spaghetti can be a fantastic menu choice for the Sunday brunch. I like the pasta dishes that are a complete meal. One does not require any sides. Just pick you plate/bowl of the dish and enjoy it while sitting on the couch or patio. Food doesn’t always have to be complicated to taste good. At times, simple and subtle flavors can create a mind blowing dish.
I am a big time pasta lover. In my kitchen pantry, you can find so many shapes and sizes of pasta. And I can confess confidently that on most of the days I can cook a mean pasta dish. Whether it is penne tossed in simple pizza/pasta sauce or the whole wheat sauce pasta, they all are crowd pulling dishes. My husband and friends agree to that. Pasta is such a versatile ingredient and the possibilities to cook with it are endless. You can be as much creative as possible.
To be honest, I don’t like too rich and creamy pasta sauces. I prefer sticking to light and flavorsome sauces. So that the texture and taste of pasta are not overshadowed by the sauce. After all, pasta should be the hero of the dish. My secret trick to make a delicious sauce lies in the boiled pasta water. Don’t ever throw away that water. It can do wonders to the soups and sauces. ideally, one is supposed to use stock in such recipes. But we all know on a day to day cooking most of the times it is not feasible to have fresh stock in hand. And I do not prefer using stock cubes due to high sodium content in them. Hence, the reserved boiled pasta water does the magic for us. So next time you boil pasta, reserve a cup of boiled water and use that in the sauce.
Try this Chicken Stroganoff with Spaghetti Recipe and I am sure very soon it will make its way into your favorite weeknight dinner list. It is quick to make, easy to follow and super good. What else you need in a perfect pasta dish?
