Fettuccini in a Pot

Original recipe by Number 2 Pencil
Modified by me

Serves 8

16 oz uncooked fettuccine
2 cups heavy cream
4 cups water
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp salt
Pepper to taste
2 cloves garlic minced
3 cups finely shredded Parmesan cheese
Chopped cremini mushrooms
Cooked chicken, diced (rotisserie works great!) 

Combine all ingredients except mushrooms and chicken in Dutch oven or heavy bottomed pot.

Bring to a boil. Stir.

Reduce heat to a low simmer and cover.

Let pan simmer, covered, 15-20 minutes, or until pasta is tender. Add mushrooms half way through.

Remove from heat. Don't worry if it still looks a bit liquidy. It will thicken as it cools. 

Stir in cheese. Stir in chicken. Serve immediately.
