Fettuccine Alfredo

When I was planning our menu for the week my husband and I decided to stay home for Valentine’s Day dinner but to go out to Seattle during the day.  My husband requested Fettuccine Alfredo with chicken.  I had to hunt a bit but I ended up finally going with my old stand by, Cooking Light.  Cooking Light has yet to fail me!

This recipe came together quite quickly and I love that I had almost all of the ingredients on hand.  The sauce turned out a bit thick when I added the Parmesan cheese, so I thinned it down with a little more milk.  My husband and I loved this recipe and were surprised at how much it tasted like something you would get in a recipe. My husband loved the consistency of the sauce too. We paired this with a fabulous bottle of Barefoot Pinot Grigio.

Enjoy!
