Fettuccine Alfredo with Grilled Chicken

I just wanted to let you know that I don't always just eat major fattening sweets....we eat major fattening dinners too!  yeah...I know but hey, it IS good!

But first I bring you some joys of autumn.......

A jar of candy corn pumpkins!! Happiness in a jar!

Let's marinate those chicken breasts....just some olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper

Grab the following stuffs:
1 pound fettuccine noodles (buy the good stuff here)
1 stick of butter (yeah yeah I hear ya!)
1 cup heavy cream (seriously..are we still debating these ingredients?)
salt & pepper to taste
2 cups freshly grated parmesan cheese

C'mon's not like you're gonna eat this every night!!

Get those fettuccine noodles on to boil per package instructions

Melt the butter in a pan

Drink some'll help you forget about all the calories you're consuming
& send the griller out with the chicken too!

Warm the cream in the melted butter then lightly season with salt & pepper

Have your 1 cup of your parmesan cheese waiting in a bowl

Pour warm butter/cream mixture over top of cheese
Don't stir

Drain the pasta (reserve 1 cup of the pasta water)
Add noodles to the bowl & toss a bit

Toss the noodles a bit then add the remaining parmesan cheese.

Tell that griller to bring that chicken on over 

Now put down some of those scrumptious noodles with a chicken breast on top and serve along side a nice healthy salad.  Hey...I'm trying to salvage some sense of nutrition here!!

Enjoy!!!  This is a treat people. A super easy yet sinfully decadent meal!!!
Your family will love you for it!

Now if you will excuse Shepherds Pie is almost done and I must pack
yeah again!  But this is a FUN trip!!!

Peace, Love & Yummies!!
