Fettucini alfredo with spicy chicken


Alfredo with spicy chicken. 

Fettucini alfredo is a delicious week night dinner. It is easy to make and delicious. 

You can get homemade pasta for this dish at Lotsa Pasta in Louisville. It is only about an hour from Lexington and the store holds homemade pastas, fresh cheeses and homemade sauces. 

At Lotsa Pasta there is also a cafe with panini, subs, salads and soups. It is a great place to eat lunch and pick up some high quality cooking ingredients. 

After buying your high quality ingredients, you are ready to make this delicious dish. If desired, there are many ways to make this alfredo recipe healthier for you. First, you can use whole wheat pasta. The sauce will give the pasta all of flavor so the dish will still taste great. 

Second, you can use skim milk instead of heavy cream. The sauce won't be as creamy but it will be much healthier for you. 

And third you could cut the butter down to one tablespoon. If you do this cut the flour down to one tablespoon too, because they need to be in equal parts. The sauce won't be as thick, but the fat will go down. Enjoy the following recipe, low-fat or regular!

    Your sauce looks really light in this picture; I like it! There's nothing worse than a super heavy alfredo.
