I'm finally posting a recipe! I got the recipe from Picky Palate. I made this last night, and we both had second helpings, it was so good.
Spinach and Asparagus Chicken Linguini in a Parmesan Gorgonzola Cream Sauce
12 oz uncooked linguini pasta
1 Bunch asparagus tips (you can use the body too, just cook longer)
2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons flour
Pinch of salt and pepper
3 Cups lowfat milk
1 ¼ Cups crumbled gorgonzola (I only used 1/2 cup)
¼ Cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 Cups baby spinach (chop into smaller pieces)
2 medium size chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
10 strips precooked bacon, crisped and crumbled
Pinch of salt and pepper to taste
1. Prepare linguini according to package directions. Drain and set aside. Bring a medium saucepan filled ¾ full of water to boil. Place asparagus tips in hot water and cook for 3 minutes. Remove and place into a bowl of ice water to shock and stop cooking. Set aside.
2. Place butter into a large dutch oven or pot over medium heat to melt. Whisk in flour, pinch of salt and pepper until combined. Slowly whisk in milk. Increase heat to medium high. While whisking, heat until milk comes to a light boil. Reduce heat to low and immediately stir in parmesan and gorgonzola until melted. Stir in chopped spinach, linguini, asparagus, chicken and half the bacon. Gently toss to coat, season with pinches of salt and pepper to taste. Serve in a large serving bowl and garnish top with remaining crumbled bacon pieces.
