This recipe is once again from Better Homes and Gardens magazine from January 1980. I have not tried it yet. Hurrying to post, since it is zucchini season.

This serves 10-12, so you may want to cut it in half.

I plan to add some chicken and garlic to the recipe. You will see my changes or additions below the original recipe, if you would care to use them.

How to Make Zucchini and Mushrooms with Fettuccini

Step-by-Step

  • 1*If using chicken, in this recipe, put a skillet on med. high heat; add oil & garlic, then chicken. Reduce heat, slightly as not to burn garlic. Saute, until brown on one side, then turned to brown other side. Reduce heat to low and add 2 Tbs. water. While, cooking chicken, start water to boil for fettuccini, as below.
  • 2Bring water to boil in a Dutch oven or spaghetti pot with the 2 Tbs. salt & the oil. Cook pasta for 7 minutes; drain. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sliced mushrooms, in the first 1/4 cup butter or margarine, over med-high heat, for 2 minutes. Set aside.
  • 3While pasta is cooking, take chicken (if using)off of heat. Cut chicken tenders into pieces. Return chicken to covered skillet, return to heat, just on warm.
  • 4In skillet with mushrooms, add zucchini, cream, and the remaining butter. Bring to boiling; simmer, covered, 3 minutes. Add chicken (if using) and stir to mix.
  • 5Add pasta to mushroom (and chicken, if using) mixture in skillet. Add Parmesan and parsley, tossing, until all is mixed. Season to taste, with salt & pepper.
  • 6Serve at once. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan, if desired. Makes 10-12 servings.
