Recipe for Cheesecake Factory Pasta Da Vinci that Tastes Like the Original

Copycat Cheesecake Factory Pasta Da Vinci Recipe

Are you a fan of Cheesecake Factory’s Pasta Da Vinci, but can’t always find the time or budget to dine at the restaurant? Well, you’re in luck because we’ve got a copycat recipe that is just as delicious and easy to make in the comfort of your own home. This creamy pasta dish is a crowd-pleaser and perfect for a cozy night in. So, let’s get started.


For this recipe, you’ll need:

  • 16 oz. of fettuccine pasta
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 8 oz. of sliced mushrooms
  • 1 diced onion
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Parsley, chopped for garnish (optional)


1. Begin by cooking the fettuccine pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside for later.

2. Prep your chicken breasts by seasoning them with salt and pepper on both sides. In a large skillet, heat up olive oil over medium-high heat. Sear the chicken for 6-7 minutes per side until fully cooked. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.

3. In the same skillet, add the sliced mushrooms and onions. Saute for 5 minutes over medium heat until softened and slightly brown. Add the minced garlic and stir for another minute.

4. Pour in the chicken broth and whisk in the heavy cream until thoroughly combined. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer for 10 minutes until the sauce has thickened.

5. Add the cooked fettuccine pasta to the skillet and toss it to coat it with the sauce. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

6. Finally, add in the grated parmesan cheese and stir until fully melted through. Slice the chicken and place it on top of the pasta, garnish with chopped parsley if desired.


While this recipe replicates Cheesecake Factory’s Pasta Da Vinci, there are plenty of ways to personalize it and make it your own. Here are some variations to try:

  • Vegetarian – Omit the chicken and add in more veggies like spinach, zucchini, or bell peppers for a meat-free option.
  • Seafood – Add in some shrimp, scallops, or crab meat to the sauce to make it a seafood pasta dish.
  • Spicy – If you like your pasta dishes with a little kick, add in some red pepper flakes or diced jalapenos to the sauce for some heat.

Tips and Tricks

– Don’t overcook the pasta! Al dente pasta is the way to go, as it holds up better when mixed into the sauce.

– If you’re short on time, pick up a rotisserie chicken from the store to use in place of cooking your own chicken.

– To make the dish even creamier, add an extra half cup of heavy cream to the sauce.

– Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.


Cheesecake Factory’s Pasta Da Vinci is a beloved dish, but it doesn’t have to be a special occasion or dine-out only meal. With this copycat recipe, you can enjoy it at home anytime and feel like you’ve transported yourself to the restaurant. Remember to experiment with different variations and make it your own. Happy cooking!
