During the summer I had a lot of free time and I enjoyed looking for new bloggers. They were not necessarily new to blogging, but new to me. My search brought me to blogs of all types, shapes and styles. I found consummate foodies and fashion diva’s. I do admit to leaving a few fashion comments, even though very few ever did respond, but I still had a great time looking for new friends.
There is no real recipe for a successful blog, with too many variables to consider,but there are certain qualities that always manage to rise to the top. One of the blogs I was lucky enough to find, spoke to me with great warmth and truth, it spoke with spirituality and kindness. I not only found a great read that day, I had found a good friend.
Today its my pleasure to introduce you to that friend, please welcome Jamie from Mangiabella. I know your going to love her blog as much as I do. So just sit back, take it all in, and get ready to smile……..Thanks for a great post Jamie!
Thank you Chef Dennis, from the bottom of my heart, for your kindness, and for sharing your world with me.
I consider it a great privilege, and an honor to write this guest post.

Today is one of those rare days where quiet called out over the chaos ~
and in this peaceful moment,
I am thinking intently on those I know whose lives are in the midst of drastic change….
I continue to marvel at how change truly “changes” us
and when that happens,
growth is inevitably right around the corner…
Won’t you take a moment today and think of someone you know
that could use a splash of color as they push through a season of gray in their lives –
perhaps your touch will give them the nourishment that they need to carry on another day
and will leave them with that comforting reminder that they are not alone….
a phone call.
a loving note.
make them a home cooked meal.
make them this meal…
This feel good fusion recipe delivers warm creamy goodness with every bite and just enough heat to tickle the taste buds and awaken the senses.
Each time I make this I like to mix it up a little, by adding crumbled bacon to the top, or using sliced grilled chicken on top instead of shredded, and I have even used salmon.
Green Chile Chicken Linguine Alfredo
1/2 lb. of linguine, cooked according to pckg directions (preferably al dente) & drained
1 1/2 cup of heavy cream
1/3 cup of butter
1 cup Parmigiano Reggiano, finely shredded
salt to taste
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
1/2 – 1 cup of chopped green chile (roasted and peeled)*
* you may use canned if you do not have access to fresh green chile,
and if so, go for the 1 cup amount.
*if you are using fresh chile,
depending on the crop and heat of the crop and how hot you like it,
you can use as little as 1/2 cup but no more than 1 cup.
In a heavy skillet over medium heat, pour 1 cup of cream in with the butter, stir until butter melts and sauce starts to thicken. Turn heat to low, add cooked linguine to pan, then add the other 1/2 cup of heavy cream. Add the Parmigiano Reggiano, and incorporate well. Add green chile and incorporate well again, then add the chicken, incorporating well, then adding salt to taste. allow to cook for another minute or two to allow flavors to meld. Plate, garnish with more Parmigiano Reggiano on top, and a little fresh thyme.
