My husband knows me very well. This dish for Chicken alla Boscaiola was a new recipe for us when we cooked it this past week, and as soon as Jack read the description for this classic Italian dish, he knew it was my kind of pasta. Boy, he was right!
Pasta alla Boscaiola, or “’Woodman’s Pasta”, is a classic Italian dish that typically combines mushrooms, pancetta, parmesan and cream to create an earthy, creamy sauce.
There are many variations of Pasta alla Boscaiola – some with tomatoes added, some with ham rather than pancetta, others vary the herbs used for flavor. We added chicken to our version and substituted bacon for the pancetta as that was what we had on hand – but we’re sure the pancetta would be equally as delicious.
This Chicken alla Boscaiola is creamy, flavorful and comforting and we hope you will enjoy it as much as we did!
