I found this smartwater sparkling in the drinks aisle at my local Albertsons. Here’s what the display was like.

We love holidays! The food, family, and fun. We love especially getting together with friends and family to celebrate! This past weekend it was so great to make a big dinner and eat with good friends! I found this amazing pasta dish and paired it with smartwater sparkling!

We got this smartwater sparkling at our local Albertsons, and it really is a great beverage to have with dinner, or other evening foods!

Sometimes you don’t know what flavors your guests will love and I hate getting those types of things wrong, so this is the perfect entertaining beverage for everyone! We had so much fun with our dinner with this drink. It’s not your average sparkling water, because it is vapor distilled with electrolytes for taste, and it is innovative and modern! You have to go get your bottle and try it out especially for the upcoming holidays!

Your guests will love it!

PS: Here is my pasta dish recipe, its sooooo yummy!

Ingredients
  • 200 g / 7oz chicken breast, cut in half horizontally
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 250 g / 8 oz fettuccine
  • 2 cups milk, any fat %
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock / broth
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup thickened / heavy cream (Note 1)
  • 3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan (Note 2)
  • Parsley, for garnish
Instructions
  1. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Use a skillet large enough to fit the pasta.

  3. Heat oil over medium high heat. Add chicken and cook for 2 minutes on each side until golden and cooked through. Remove onto plate and rest for 5 minutes, then slice while pasta is cooking.
  4. Reduce heat to medium high. Add milk, chicken broth and garlic. Bring to simmer then add pasta.
  5. Move pasta around every 30 seconds or so until it is softened (around 3 minutes) so it doesn’t stick. Once pasta is softened, reduce heat to medium and stir every couple of minutes.

  6. At about 9 – 10 minutes, the pasta should be almost cooked but there should still be liquid covering the base of the skillet. Add cream and parmesan and mix.

  7. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for ~2 minutes, until sauce is thickened and pasta is cooked. If you cook it too long and the sauce goes gluggy, add a splash of hot tap water – will go back to silky with a few tosses.

  8. Adjust salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately, garnished with freshly grated parmesan and parsley!
