Chicken Alfredo

I was giving another recipe for Alfredo sauce that I wanted to try out, as we were in search for the perfect creamy recipe. This one still wasn't as creamy as we prefer but it was very tasty!

Alfredo (Cooking Light)

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cups 1% low-fat milk
  • 1 1/4 cups (5 ounces) grated fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, divided
  • 2 tablespoons
  • 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups hot cooked fettuccine (8 ounces uncooked pasta)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Cracked black pepper

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Stir in flour. Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk. Cook 6 minutes or until mixture thickens, stirring constantly. Add 1 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano, cream cheese, and salt, stirring with a whisk until cheeses melt. Toss sauce with hot pasta. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and chopped parsley. Garnish with black pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.

***Tips: I added a splash more of milk, and some pasta water. And I also omitted the salt and black pepper, and added white pepper.

I'm thinking of trying this only adding some vegetables, too. I wonder if red peppers and broccoli might be a good compliment? Or asparagus? Maybe peas and carrots?
