I am obsessing over easy recipe these days, because the holidays are in full swing over here. Am I the only one with my tree up, and presents under it?
what other noodles could I use with this recipe?
This recipe is so versatile, you could really use any noodle to make it.
I used penne, but you could use rotini, fusilli, rigatoni, farfalle, shell, elbows, gemlike, ziti, or whatever you have on hand.
If you do use spaghetti noodles, or angel hair, be sure to break them into smaller 1-2 inch pieces before boiling, to ensure simple bites.
how could I make this recipe more healthy?
If you are looking to make this recipe more healthy, you could find a homemade Alfredo sauce, or one that doesn’t require cream.
I usually try to find an Alfredo sauce without any added sugar. I am all about shortcuts, so if I can purchase an Alfredo sauce with less calories and sugar than most other brands, I do that.
You could also add any other vegetables you like.
This would be delicious with some added broccoli, zucchini, asparagus, cauliflower, or any of your other favorite vegetables.
You could cook them in with the chicken, or add them as side dishes. I have done both. My favorite is to add steamed broccoli, then bake it with the cheese on top.
If you are looking to lower the calories, you could also use less cheese, or no cheese at all. I have never done this, because I am a cheese lover, but I’m sure it would still taste delicious.
