Today I prepared a quick and easy pasta dish because it perfectly fits a busy workday. Join me for a plate full of Creamy Chicken Alfredo Pasta.

Alfredo is a very simple white sauce variation with grated Parmesan cheese. Only three ingredients make this heavenly and super-additive sauce that you can use for many dishes. This time it will be a great add-on to our pasta dish!

This time I've boosted this dish with fresh peas and with one of my new favourite ingredients, a slightly smoked and air-dried ham, the Speck Alto Adige PGI from Exquisite Deli, at Borough Market. You can prepare many dishes with this ham... if you carve thin slices and put them on a yummy sourdough slice with some fresh ingredients, you can get a filling breakfast or brunch. You can use it for canapé bits or a great pasta dish too, so let's see what is needed for your time saver dinner today!

TIP: Always be creative and use your imagination. Feel free to add some of your favourite ingredients and create your personal favourite pasta dish! Enjoy your dinner!

  • 1 chicken breast fillet, diced

  1. Boil up some water for the spaghetti with 1 tbsp of salt, and cook it to al dente -follow the recommended cooking time on the package of your spaghetti.
  2. In the meantime start to sear the speck on some olive oil in a frying pan, then add the chicken breast pieces with a large pinch of salt, pepper and garlic.
  3. When the chicken became white and not completely raw anymore add the mushroom slices and sear the ingredients together.
  4. Finally, add the peas, place a lid on your pan for about 5 minutes to cook the peas a little bit, then add the double cream, Parmesan to your taste and cook your sauce till it thickens.
