Ingredients for 4 people

Fonduta con Tartufo from Relish

Tagliatelle con funghi e tartufo from Relish

Parmegiano Reggiano from Relish

2 large chicken breasts, diced in approx. 1cm cubes

Frozen peas

500ml single cream

Salt and pepper to taste


Gently fry in the diced chicken breasts in olive oil until just cooked and golden. Remove from frying pan and dry with kitchen roll to remove any remaining oil.  Mix the chicken with the Fonduta and leave for half an hour to marinate.

Add the cream to the chicken/fonduta and gently warm through in a pan. Add the frozen peas to the mixture. You want them warmed through, but not overcooked.

Meanwhile, place the tagliatelle in boiling salted water and cook for approximately 3 to 4 minutes until al dente. Drain.

Immediately add the creamy chicken to the pasta, mix and place in a serving bowl. Add pepper, and salt if needed. Grate parmesan over the top.

Serve immediately.
