Chicken Asparagus Fettucini Alfredo Recipe

This Chicken Asparagus Fettucini Afredo is so simple to throw together, and is sure to be a hit with the picky eaters. If you are a pasta lover, this recipe is sure to be a new favorite.

My husband loves fettucini alfredo. I was never a big fan, my whole life, but once I married him, he showed me a few delicious Italian restaurants, with amazing Alfredo, and ever since, I have to admit, I’ve been a little hooked on it.

I have never really loved white sauce on my pasta.  It is delicious, don’t get me wrong,  I just prefer a nice red sauce.

I decided to compromise and whipped up this meal in a matter of minutes.  It was so good that even an alfredo hater (or I guess questioner) like myself had seconds. It was a pasta win, both my husband and I could agree on.

does this recipe freeze well?

I have only made this recipe fresh. However, if you have leftovers and want to freeze them, or even double the recipe and want to freeze it for another night, you definitely could.

Everything should freeze well, but you may need a little more sauce or cheese when you reheat it, because it will sink in to the chicken and noodles a little more.

We also recommend freezing it in an airtight container, to help it stay fresh in the freezer. We suggest eating it within a week or two of making it, for the best results, and best tasting leftovers.

what other vegetable could i use instead of asparagus?

I love this combination with asparagus, however, you could easily switch it up and do really any vegetable you prefer. Here are a few that might also be delicious with this recipe:

  • broccoli
  • cauliflower
  • carrots
  • sugar snap peas
  • green beans
  • peas
  • zucchini
  • yellow squash
