The weather here still remains cold, rainy, yucky and for some reason during my weight loss
I crave comfort food.
So here goes another easy cooking yum meal.
6 ounces fettuccine, preferably spinach
2 teaspoons canola oil or olive oil
3 leeks, white parts only, washed and finely chopped (1 1/2 cups)
6 ounces button mushrooms, quartered
1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary, divided
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup low-fat milk
2 cups cubed cooked chicken breast
Grated zest of 1 lemon
Lemon juice, to taste
Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup fine dry breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
The How to's:
1.Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a 3-quart baking dish with cooking spray.
2.Cook fettuccine in boiling salted water until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold running water. Drain and set aside.
3.Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add leeks and cook, stirring, until lightly browned, 6 to 8 minutes. Add mushrooms and 1/2 teaspoon rosemary; cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add broth and milk; bring to a boil, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 4 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in chicken. Season with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
4.Gently mix the cooked fettuccine into chicken mixture and spoon into prepared baking dish.
5.Combine Parmesan, breadcrumbs, lemon zest, parsley and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon rosemary in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the mixture over the casserole.
6.Bake casserole for 20 to 30 minutes, or until bubbling. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
