Garlic Chicken Alfredo – high protein

I know this is a simple recipe. This post is primarily to give you ideas for brands to use and ways to add in a little extra protein to your pasta dishes. I swear Banza tastes like normal box pasta!

what you need:

  • pasta of choice – i use Banza brand for extra protein
  • alfredo sauce – you can make this or buy it. I use Primal Kitchen Garlic Alfredo Sauce but any will work
  • chicken – Steven usually grills chicken (season with olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper) but rotisserie would be an easy option as well!

what to do:

  • cook pasta as instructed on box – make sure to continually stir especially if using Banza
  • drain pasta water, reserving 1/2 cup
  • toss pasta in sauce and add pasta water until consistency you like
  • top with chicken
  • enjoy!
