fettuccine Alfredo with grilled chicken

Ahhh….creamy garlicky Fettuccine Alfredo. This was one of the first “real” dishes I learned how to make when I was in college. I didn’t have any experience in the kitchen at that time so I used to get the Alfredo sauce in a jar. Yuck! It didn’t taste like Alfredo sauce AT ALL, so I decided to learn how to make it on my own. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to make, and how good it tasted!

Added some grilled chicken here for some protein so it’s not ALL carbs 😛
