  • Cheesy Lemon Chicken Pasta
  • Description
    • Pecorino Romano and Parmesan give cheesy flavor to this easy lemon-chicken pasta dish that's sure to please the whole family!
  • Ingredients
    • 1 (16 ounce) package linguine pasta
    • 1 cup frozen peas
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 (8 ounce) package button mushrooms, sliced
    • 1/2 cup diced onion
    • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
    • kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste
    • 1/2 (8 ounce) package reduced-fat cream cheese, cubed and softened
    • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
    • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
    • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    • 1/4 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese
    • 1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf (Italian) parsley
  • Directions
    • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook linguine at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes, adding frozen peas during the last 2 minutes of cooking time. Drain pasta and peas, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid. While the pasta is cooking, heat butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and onion; cook until mushrooms are brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Cook in the same skillet over medium-high heat until browned and no longer pink, 7 to 10 minutes. Add the mushrooms back to the skillet. Add cream cheese, lemon juice, and lemon zest; stir until cream cheese is melted. Remove from heat. Fold in Parmesan and Pecorino Romano cheeses, then parsley. Toss with pasta and peas, adding reserved cooking liquid as necessary to make a sauce.

  • Russ's Drink Corner
  • Rabbit Hole Cavehill KSBW
  • Description
    • Louisville, Kentucky, is the home of American Distillation. In the twilight of its history, farmers of French and English descent bubbled mixtures of yeast, water and corn in handmade stills to make a new spirit: American Whiskey. Some of these pioneers took inspiration from French Brandy and aged their distillate in charred oak barrels creating what we know as bourbon today. Developing our super-premium whiskey takes time. We slowly toast our barrels over a wood-fired flame before charring, a process that takes up to 20 minutes per barrel. Toasting coaxes sugars from deep in the wood which mingle with the distillate during the aging process, giving our whiskeys unparalleled complexity and flavor. Cavehill is a testament to modern whiskey making. This bourbon gives you an array of flavors due to our signature four-grain mash of corn, malted barley, honey malted barley and malted wheat. It's a love letter to our forefathers, showing not only how far American Whiskey has come but how it continues to grow.
