Chicken Pasta Alfredo

Posted on

There’s something about noodles with a creamy white sauce that’s just, um….yummy!  Pasta is one of my favorite comfort foods & this recipe nice & easy, which makes me love it even more.

Make a little salad & maybe add in a little garlic bread & you’ll have one happy family!

Chicken Pasta Alfredo

8 oz cream cheese

1 c. whole milk

4 tbsp butter

1 c. grated parmesan

16 oz whole wheat pasta (farfalle, fettuccine, fusilli – pick your favorite)

2 c. chopped cooked chicken

2 c. frozen peas, thawed

2-3 tsp Italian seasonings

1 c. seasoned breadcrumbs (check out this recipe for how I make my own, add 1 tsp Italian seasonings to season your homemade breadcrumbs)

1/2 c. grated parmesan

3 tbsp butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400°.  Butter a 9×13 baking dish (or equivalent sized casserole dish).

Combine cream cheese, milk, 4 tbsp butter & 1 c. parmesan in a medium saucepan over low-medium heat.  Mix until all the ingredients are melted & combined.  Remove from heat & set aside.

Cook the pasta according to the package instructions, making sure to not overcook.  Drain & return to pan.  Mix in the prepared sauce, chicken, peas & Italian seasonings.

In a separate bowl, mix together breadcrumbs, parmesan & melted butter.

Pour pasta mixture into prepared dish & sprinkle breadcrumb mixture on top.  Bake uncovered for 25 minutes, or until the topping is a nice golden brown.

Enjoy!
