Recipe: Fettucini with Chicken and Garden Vegetables

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

Sacramento has been “enjoying” temperatures at or near 100° this week.  A friend stopped by to visit for a couple of hours and enjoy an early dinner.  Here’s the recipe!

Fettucini with Chicken and Garden Vegetables


Fettucini with Chicken and Garden Vegetables



  • 1 pkg. Fettucini Pasta
  • 2 Chicken Breasts – Roasted or Broiled and Sliced
  • ½ cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • ½ cup Sun Dried Tomatoes – Julienne Sliced
  • ½ cup Kalamata Olives – Pitted
  • 5 or 6 Squash – Combination of Yellow, Zucchini or other favorites – Sliced
  • 4 tablespoons Butter (olive oil can be substituted)
  • 1 tablespoon Italian Seasoning
  • Salt and Fresh Ground Pepper to taste


Steam squash until al dente stage.  At same time cook Fettucini pasta following directions on the package.  Once pasta has reached al dente, drain and place in large bowl.  Add butter or olive oil.  Add all other ingredients, and toss until incorporated. 

A GREAT summer evening dinner!

Hi Myrl,

That looks good and healthy! I wouldn't think of adding squash but it sure looks tempting and delicious.

I'm glad you had an opportunity to share a meal with a friend.

It's toasty here in Texas too. I hope you find good ways to cool off!

Have a great weekend.

Patricia - It seems so much of the country is enduring heat and draught right now!  I continue to swim laps several times a week, and that helps considerably.  I hadn't seen my friend, Barbara, for awhile.  It was good to catch up!  Adding squash to the recipe, along with the sundried tomatoes, olives, parmesan and Italian seasoning really provides a variety of flavors!

[Note from Myrl to William Johnson]:  Should you visit this blog, I know I will likely lose you with the addition of the cheese in this recipe.  You can always exclude the parmesan.  The world will continue to revolve, even without it. . .tsk, tsk!

Yum! Hungry now! I am so trying this... chicken alfredo is one of my favorite dishes and this has a bit of a twist. Thanks for sharing.

Myrl, that fettucine looks delicious.  I love sauteed fresh vegetables over pasta, it is so good.   THanks for sharing.

Jack - If I had more of my life in front of me, rather than behind me, I'd likely consider becoming a chef.  But I am what I am these days, so will likely hang onto those lock boxes:-)

Gretchen - I often make an alfredo sauce, and add lime juice and chipolte pepper to it.  I also sometimes substitute chicken for Shrimp.  I'm fond of Fettucini, but there are a variety of other pastas that I also love.

June - Fresh vegetables in summer offer all kinds of possibilities for dishes.  I had a bunch of tomatoes come ripe in my garden earlier this week, so I put them in the dehydrator and dried them.  Some were used in this dish, along with the squash and other ingredients.

William - I'm not so certain I was a chef in a previous life, but perhaps I can be in the next.  My first cooking experiences in this current life were hilarious and almost lethal at times:-)  My first attempt at gravy was equal parts of grease, flour and milk.  It rolled out of the gravy boat in a single ball.

Tom - If your garden isn't full of these really fresh vegetables, than one of our local Farmer's Markets certainly are.  The squash were especially tasty.

Steve and Jan -  Ain't it the truth!  I often find myself eating the most bazaar things for breakfast.  One of my favorites is pizza from the night before.  I don't even bother to heat it up after retrieving it from the refrigerator.  I think that chicken in your photo, is waiting to be in my next recipe:-)
