My favorite pasta recipe is for chicken carbonara.
In a 3-quart saucepan, over medium heat, cook onion and garlic in 1 tablespoon of olive oil until tender. Stir in chicken, cheese, whipping cream, salt and pepper. Continue to cook stirring occasionally until heated through. Stir in bacon and toss with spaghetti. Serve with additional grated parmesean cheese, warm bread and a salad for a complete meal.
