Lj's Chicken Pappardelle Carbonara

Whilst out shopping today I found some delicious Rosemary Pancetta and decided to make a Chicken Pappardelle Carbonara for my lovely Sissy tonight. I have used as much local product as I can... substitute the ingredients to suit yourself...


2 Tbs Cobram Estate Olive Oil
2 Tbs Nuttalex (You can substitute with butter)
100g Rosemary Pancetta
500g Free Range Chicken Breast finely diced
8 Button Mushrooms finely sliced
2 Cloves of fresh Garlic finely chopped
1/4 Cup Sauv Blanc
1/2 Teas freshly Ground Black Pepper
2 Free Range Eggs
1/2 Cup Parmigiano Reggiano
1/2 Teas Murray River Salt Flakes
2 Tablespoons of chopped Flat Leaf Parsley
500g Fresh Pappardelle pasta or any fresh pasta of choice

What to do:

Heat a large saucepan of water and bring to the boil, add salt flakes. Heat a pan and add the olive oil and nuttalex. Add the garlic to infuse the flavour through the oil and butter. Add the pancetta and the mushrooms and saute until the mushrooms are soft.

Add the chicken and wine and stir through. Cook for a few minutes until the ckicken is just cooked and tender and the wine has reduced by half.  Set aside and keep warm.  Add the fresh pasta to the boiling water and cook until aldente.. approx 12 minutes. In the meantime whisk the eggs and the Parmigiano. Drain the pasta and add the eggs and Parmigiano. Mix well really quickly so that the eggs don't scramble. Add the Chicken etc and chopped parsley. Serve immediately and top with grated Parmigiano on top.
