Victoria Lucas


3/4 lb fettuccini pasta
1 lb large raw shrimp, peeled and deveined or chicken breast; boneless, skinless and in 1 inch cubes
1 tableapoon olive oil
1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoon butter
1 garlic clove, minced
1/3 cup white wine
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Salt and black pepper, to taste
1/4 teaspoon paprika, or to taste
Parsley, finely chopped, to garnish

Add pasta to a pot of boiling water with 1 tablespoon salt and cook according to package instructions until al dente. Drain without rinsing and set aside. While pasta is cooking, prepare the shrimp and sauce. Season shrimp or chicken with salt, black pepper and paprika. Place a large, non­stick pan over medium/high heat and add oil. Once oil is hot, add meat in a single layer and cook just until cooked through. Remove to a separate dish to prevent overcooking. In the same hot pan, add butter with finely chopped onion and sauté until soft and golden (3­ to 5 mins), stirring often. Add minced garlic and sauté another minute until fragrant. Stir in white wine and boil down until there is only 25% of the liquid left. Stir in cream, bring to a light boil then simmer 2 min. Sprinkle sauce with Parmesan cheese and stir just until creamy and smooth. Let it come just to a simmer without boiling then turn off the heat and season sauce with more salt, pepper, and paprika to taste. Stir in the drained pasta and cooked meat, tossing until noodles are well coated in sauce. Serve in warm pasta bowls with a generous sprinkle of finely chopped parsley, more Parmesan cheese, and some freshly cracked black pepper.
