Chicken Carbonara

Sharing my mom's recipe. ^^  
Chicken Carbonara

Ingredients:

1 kilo of fettuccine noodles
1 kilo of ground chicken
1 can of mushroom, sliced
5 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 butter
2 cans of Del Monte Carbonara Sauce or 2 cans of cream of mushroom
1 can of all purpose cream
1 cup water
2 tablespoon of flour
1 chicken broth cube
1/4 cheese, grated
salt and pepper to taste

Preparation:

Carbonara Sauce:
Low heat, saute garlic until color turns to golden brown
Add 1/2 butter, melt. Add 2 tablespoon of flour, mix well
Add ground chicken, until cook
Add del monte carbonara sauce or cream of mushroom, bring to a boil
Add all purpose cream, 1 cup of water, mushrooms and chicken broth, bring to a boil
Add grated cheese and melt.
Add salt and pepper to taste 

Noodles:
Boil water
Add 1 tablespoon of oil
Put the noodles into the boiling water.
Cook it for 10-15 minutes. Don't over cook the noodles.
Remove the noodles from the water, then melt 1/4 of butter into the noodles. (noodles won't be sticky)



Tips:
To avoid sticky pasta noodles, when boiling water for the pasta just add 1 tablespoon of oil before putting the noodles.
** remember putting to much oil will cause the sauce to slide off the noodles.
Cook it for 10-15 minutes. DO NOT OVER COOK the noodles.
Continue to stir the noodles periodically throughout the cooking process. The noodles are done when they become soft. Drain the noodles, lubricate the noodles with 1/4 butter in 1 kilo of pasta noodles. 
** remember putting to much butter will cause the sauce to slide off the noodles.
