Chicken Alfredo

 This family loves alfredo! The meal at the Olive Garden is one of our favorites. Pete was online last week and found a website called Budget101 and discovered they had a bunch of copy cat recipes including the Olive Garden's alfredo sauce. We gave it a try, what a super easy meal to make! We also added grilled chicken to have some protein :)

Copycat Alfredo Sauce with Grilled Chicken
1lb Fettuccine
1 pt heavy cream
1 stick butter
2 T cream cheese
1/2 to 3/4 c Parmesan cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
4 Chicken Breasts
salt & pepper to taste

While pasta is cooking,
Grill some chicken.....
in a saucepan melt butter....
then stir in heavy cream, and cream cheese. Simmer this until all is melted, and mixed well.
Add the parmesan cheese and garlic powder. Simmer this for 15 to 20 min on low.....can be left on low longer, just watch it and stir.  
place pasta onto plate, slice chicken into strips and add to top of pasta. Pour sauce over pasta and chicken, then enjoy!
