I grew up in Stenhousemuir which is a small village near Stirling and inbetween Glasgow and Edinburgh. When we went to university, my school buddies and I all went in different directions. I went to university in Dundee to study accountancy (its what all the cool kids picked 😉) and my closest friends went to Glasgow and Cambridge. We often met up in the holidays and seemed to go to TGI Friday’s a lot (this was prior to my coeliac diagnosis). I always had the same dish – a smokey chicken pasta with a garlic cream sauce.
I’m not sure what made me think of that dish but I had some smoked chicken sausages (from Marks & Spencer’s) leftover from a family BBQ and was looking to use them up for dinner. I remembered that pasta and I’ve had a go at recreating it as best I could.
Whether it tastes like that dish, I’m not exactly sure because it has been a long time since I was a student, but I can say it is delicious.
