    MariaLuisa's Note:

    This pasta dish is named after my ddddddh (il Professore), who served as chief taster. I prefer tagliatelle to fettucine -- the noodles are narrower. Prosciutto in Italian simply means ham, and I prefer cooked unsmoked ham for this recipe. Finally, when small cultivated mushrooms aren't available, I use dried porcini mushrooms as explained in the recipe.

      Hi there. I made this for Spring PAC 2009. It was excellent! I didn't have any cream, so I made a cream sauce using a roux and milk, plus the seasonings. It made a great sauce! Thanks for the fantastic italian meal! :)

      What a wonderfully easy and delicious pasta dish. We thoroughly enjoyed having this along with a simple salad tonight. I could not find tagliatelle and used fettucine for this but I was just amazed at the taste of the sauce coming from simple ingredients. I cut the chicken pieces too big this time and plan on carefully julienne into much thinner and smaller pieces next time. I also cooked 6 oz fettucine (I got greedy) instead of 4 oz and there was enough sauce to accommodate all the pasta. This will become one of our favorite pasta dishes that I plan on fixing often. Thank you MariaLuisa for posting such a wondeful recipe.
