Quick Fettuccine Alfredo With Chicken
1 lb fettuccine pasta
2 cups Alfredo sauce
2 (16 ounce) packages pre-cooked chicken strips (i.e. Perdue Short Cuts)
grated Parmesan cheese, to taste
1. Prepare peas according to directions on package. Drain.
2. Prepare fettuccine according to directions on package. While fettuccine is boiling, combine chicken and Alfredo sauce in a small saucepan and heat on medium-low heat until chicken is heated through.
3. Drain fettuccine.
4. Slowly toss in chicken and sauce mixture.
5. Add Parmesan to taste.
I like to add broccoli to my recipe or peas are good too. Also for a lighter version use light Parmesan sauce instead of the Alfredo sauce. They both taste just great. If you want your sauce to go farther or if it gets dry just add a little milk to make it more moist. I also like to add grated light or low fat mozzarella cheese too.
