Here is a fairly healthy version for anything alfredo (and it’s available at the grocery store)! My daughter loves it, so I had to find a way to incorporate it into our dinners. My choice would have been to find a way to create it myself…but time is of the essence tonight!
I apologize for not having a series of “how to” pictures as I normally would…my camera didn’t retain the images I took.
Serving for 2 adults
- 1 lb Chicken Breast
- 1 jar of Classico Light Asiago Romano Alfredo Sauce (sorry it’s not homemade!) you will actually only use 2/3 cup.
- 1 12oz bag of BirdsEye SteamFresh broccoli
- 1 box of whole wheat linguine (you will only use approx 1/3 of the box)
- salt, pepper to taste
- grated parmesan cheese (optional)
Add EVOO to a large skillet. Cut chicken breasts into strips or dice. Lightly salt and pepper to taste. Cook thoroughly. Set aside.
While chicken is cooking, boil water for pasta. Add 1/3 of a box of whole wheat linguine. Cook per instructions.
Also…while all that is going on, steam broccoli in the microwave. I always steam for the minimum time so they don’t get too mushy…but I think it depends on your microwave wattage as well. Drain and set aside.
Once pasta is done, drain and add to skillet (where the chicken is). Add broccoli. Add 2/3 cup of alfredo sauce. Mix thoroughly. Done!
**add a light sprinkle of grated parmesan if you choose**
