I love Italian food! I could eat it every day, every meal if it wasn’t for the carbs in pasta. To be honest I’ve tried some low carb pastas but I’d rather just have the real thing once in awhile. When you think about it, though, it’s the sauces that make the recipes so good. Marinara, Bolognese, Alfredo… and any of those can be low carb (you’ve GOT to try my low carb Bolognese). You just need a vehicle for getting the sauces into your mouth!

Slice seasoned chicken breast and then fry it. Using cooked chicken from your meal prep day is also an easy option. Once it’s cooked toss it with the steamed asparagus, stir the sauce into it, and sprinkle some extra Parmesan and Italian parsley on the top. Substitute broccoli for the asparagus, or add a few mushrooms, or whatever you like. Don’t be afraid to change it up to suit your mood.

That’s it. It really is that easy.

Alfredo sauce has to be heated gently or it will separate. If you’ve made it ahead of time you can just warm it slowly on the stove while the chicken is cooking. If it even comes to a full simmer it will separate so be careful. Don’t warm it in the microwave!

  1. This is maaaaahhvelous baby!! I used fresh green beans rather than asparagus and my 13 year old started sneaking it and the chicken out of the pan lol! I had made chicken fettuccini alfredo for the rest of the family and she informed me she would eat this as a meal next time. That’s a true test of deliciousness in this house.

  5. Best Alfredo I’ve ever had! For vegetables I used asparagus, mushrooms, broccolli, and cherry tomatoes (all fresh vegetables). Doubled the Alfredo sauce and chicken to serve 6 people. Everyone, including the kids, said it was excellent!! I will definitely make this again. And again. And again. Btw – the multiple veggies really enhanced the flavor. Served it in soup bowls w a side of salad.
