Chicken Alfredo
  1. Place onion and rutabaga in a saucepan. Cover with water. Bring to a boil. Boil 10 minutes or until vegetables are soft. Remove vegetables with a slotted spoon and place in a blender; reserve water.
  2. While vegetables are boiling, cook chicken in oil in a medium skillet over med heat. While vegetables and chicken are cooking, cook pasta according to package directions.
  3. Add cashews, 1 cup of the boiled water, the Italian seasoning, and the lemon juice to the vegetables in the blender. Blend until smooth. Add more water, if desired, to thin the sauce. Add salt and garlic to blender, and continue blending until smooth. Stir sauce into chicken, and pour over cooked, drained pasta. Top with parmesan cheese and fresh basil, if desired.
