Yum this was a delicious comfort food dinner that made a huge pot of pasta that will last me a few days of leftovers!
For the Alfredo sauce you will need:
- 3tbsp butter
- 1 shallot
- 6 cloves garlic
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
Melt butter. Add shallot and garlic, saute until soft. Add the cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg. Keep on low heat to gently simmer while you prepare the rest of the dish – about 20 minutes total.
Cook a chicken breast, slice into strips and set aside.
Add about 10 sliced cremini mushrooms to the simmering sauce.
Cook pasta or choice. I used a rice and veg pasta. You can use whatever you want, regular, rice, zucchini or squash noodles. Depends on what you’re feeling. I wanted the true pasta comfort feel. Add to the sauce once cooked.
Add the chicken and about 2 cups of broccoli.
Mix in a cup of finely grated asiago or Parmesan. Stir until melty.
