Chicken Vegetable Alfredo Recipe
On weeknights, I'm always on the search for recipes for delicious and healthy meals for my family that also don't take too much time to prepare. Last night, I created this yummy chicken and vegetable pasta that combines all those things. For the rich simmered-for-hours sauce, here's my secret: Prego Homestyle Alfredo, which has the perfect balance of fresh cream, garlic, and Parmesan cheese for a smooth and creamy taste.
Check out the recipe and let us know what you think!
