A quick, easy and simple Slimming World friendly Chicken Mushroom Alfredo – Delicious tender pasta loaded with chicken and mushrooms in a creamy and irresistibly delicious homemade Syn Free Alfredo sauce.
When I am looking for a new recipe to create that MrFatgirlskinny will also devour, a creamy pasta dish is always a good shout. This recipe is perfect for all of the family and it is very quick and easy to make.
The hardest part when creating this recipe was keeping the creamy taste without using full fat cream. But replacing with creamy cheese from your Healthy Extra A allowance has done the job. Its simply delicious!
Could I Add More Speed Foods?
Of course… this recipe would also work with Spinach, Broccoli, Red Onion and Peppers. If you prefer to keep the recipe as it is just remember to try and fill half of your plate with vegetables or a cheeky salad first.
Can I Store this dish after cooking?
This will store in the fridge in an air tight container for upto 3 days before reheating. Just remember to allow it to fully cool before placing in the fridge.
We have not tried freezing this yet but I don’t see why it wouldn’t be just fine.
