CHICKEN LINGUINE ALFREDO
Dreamfields Pasta is a real breakthrough for carb conscious pasta lovers!
12 oz Dreamfields Linguine or Spaghetti Pasta
8 oz light or regular cream cheese
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
(canned variety works well)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup Hood Carb Countdown Milk,
OR half cream and water
2 cups or more of diced, cooked chicken, OR turkey
In large saucepan, bring substantial amount of water to a boil. Add Dreamfields pasta. Return to boiling and set timer for 11 minutes. Drain using a colander or strainer.
While pasta is cooking, in another large saucepan, combine cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, butter, and milk or cream mixture. Over medium to low heat, stir until everything has melted and the sauce is smooth after whisking. Stir in chicken or turkey and cook briefly over medium-low heat until meat is hot. Stir in Dreamfields pasta. Sprinkle each serving with freshly grated black pepper or a favorite seasoned herb mix. Serve alongside a salad, if desired. Refrigerated leftovers, heated, taste just as good the next day.
