COOK'S NOTES FOR CHICKEN TAGLIATELLE
Outside of Italy tagliatelle is much less popular compared to the ubiquitous
spaghetti. Both are made from the same pasta mixture it's just the shape which
is different. There is no definitive definition of the shape of tagliatelle but
a with of 8mm and a thickness of 1mm is generally considered to be best.
The real reason for using tagliatelle compared to spaghetti is that the
broader and thinner shape of tagliatelle allows it to absorb more of the
accompanying sauce's flavour. It's also easier to spoon or fork up an
equal mix of pasta and sauce when the pasta is flat.
Even in British supermarkets you can now buy different types of
tagliatelle, the flavourings often give the pasta different colourings,
green being the most common. For the chicken stock we used the ready made
ones which are also now found in most supermarkets. Even the good quality
ones are reasonably priced and they do taste better.
If you are using leftover cooked chicken for this recipe, don't fry the
chicken in the first step (just fry the bacon), instead add the cooked
chicken at the same time as you add the cream.
