Chicken Penne Pasta in Alfredo Sauce

Chicken and Pasta in Alfredo sauce is a great combination if you want something different but a heavy meal. In slightly more time than it takes to boil the noodles you’ll have a creamy, rich sauce draping itself luxuriously over pasta.

A week ago we’ve been in an Italian restaurant and tasted the same dish, it was flavorful yes but i find the pasta a bit hard to chew. From then on, I promised myself to prepare one of my own version… a creamy, cheesy Alfredo dish and I’ll make sure that pasta will be al dente for a more enjoyable meal. And here it goes… come & enjoy with me a late lunch!
