Chicken Tetrazzini

A creamy classic that is one of those comfort foods that you're always craving when the weather or events of the day have you down.  

Chicken Tetrazzini

3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp flour
1 1/2 cups chicken broth 
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese, separated
1 tbsp parsley
1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes

1/8 tsp nutmeg
2 chicken breasts, cooked and cut into bite-size pieces
8 oz linguini, cooked al dente

In a medium saucepan, melt butter and stir in flour until a paste forms.  Gradually stir in broth and milk.  Allow to cook and thicken while you cook your pasta.  When the sauce has thickened, stir in 1 cup of Parmesan cheese, parsley, red pepper flakes, peas, mushrooms and chicken and cook for another couple of minutes.  Add in pasta and serve.
