"Chicken" with Basil Cream Sauce over Pasta

A couple handfuls of Soy Curls, reconstituted in chicken seasoning.

3 T Butter (or coconut oil)
1 T olive oil
1/2 c broth from reconstituting soy curls (add water if needed to make 1/2 c)
1 c heavy whipping cream (that's what the recipe says, since we use raw milk, I poured cream off the top of the milk)
1/2 c grated parmesan cheese
1/4 c minced fresh basil (or 1 t dried)
1 t cornstarch

8 oz cooked pasta (we use ww spaghetti)

In lg skillet (I use all cast iron skillets) brown soy curls in butter and olive oil. Remove soy curls from skillet & set aside. Add broth to skillet, bring to a boil over med heat and stir to loosen browned bits from pan bottom. Stir in cream, boil and stir 1 min. Reduce heat. Stir in parmesan & basil and cook till heated through. Mix corn starch with extra chicken broth and stir into skillet if needed to thicken.

The recipe calls for layering everything together, because my children don't like the soy curls, I keep everything seperate and let each person layer things the way they want at the table.
