More About This Recipe
  • Skip the dinner reservations and make this restaurant-worthy pasta dish in your own kitchen! This one-pot chicken Alfredo is elegant yet easier than ever since all of the ingredients cook in one dish. This recipe calls for peas and rotisserie chicken, but why stop there? The peas can easily be substituted with spinach, broccoli or even asparagus. And if you’re looking to change up the classic chicken Alfredo, use shrimp or ham, or go meatless! Although chicken Alfredo has plenty of flavor on its own thanks to the sauce and Parmesan, try adding some crushed red pepper or black pepper for added flavor. Typically chicken Alfredo is paired with fettuccine noodles but really, you can use any noodle you’d like as we did here with penne. Not sure what to do with all those boxes of penne noodles in the cupboard? Follow us to the most clever and delicious dinners you’ve ever had—all starring penne pasta.
