Recipe - Chicken Alfredo Pasta

DBF mentioned something about creamy pasta the other day and it got me thinking about it, then craving I put this together last night. It turned out really great!!

- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, chopped
- about 50gram cooked ham, chopped
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup frozen peas
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 package McCormick's alfredo sauce (1 cup skim milk, 2 tsp margarine)
- 1/2 box small pasta (I used whole wheat bow-ties)

Get water boiling for pasta. In a large skillet, saute the chicken & garlic in a bit of olive oil (add salt & pepper to taste)...when almost done, add ham and continue sauteing. Reduce heat and keep warm, add green onions once sizzling has stopped. In another pot, make alfredo sauce according to package directions. When pasta has about 2 minutes left to cook, add frozen peas to boiling water.

When pasta & peas are cooked & drained, bring chicken pan back up to medium heat. Add the drained pasta to the skillet, then add the sauce. Stir carefully to coat everything. Heat until everything is heated through.

Serve immediately. Top with fresh parmesan if desired.

Makes 4 servings. So yum! Pin It
