How to make lemon fettuccine

Cook the noodles. First, start by cooking 8 ounces (or half a box) of fettuccine noodles according to the directions on the box. These noodles are thick and chewy, which makes them delicious in this pasta dish.

Cooking the chicken. While the pasta is cooking, cut 3 to 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts into small pieces. Spice with salt and pepper. Cook with 2 tablespoons of extra virgin oil over medium heat until chicken is golden and cooked through.

Mix the tomatoes and parsley.. Add sun-drained tomatoes and fresh parsley to the chicken and continue cooking for 3 to 4 minutes, until the chicken is fully cooked. Reserve 2 tablespoons of sun-dried tomato oil for the dressing. I really love the taste of tomatoes. They are slightly sweet and chewy and packed with tons of delicious flavor.

Make the dressing. For the dressing, I combined the sun-dried dried tomato oil, fresh lemon juice, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a mason jar. Then stir or shake with a lid until well combined.

Add noodles and dressing. Add fettuccine noodles to cooked chicken. Pour lemon dressing over pasta and mix well. Garnish with fresh parsley, if desired.
