About this recipe: A quick and easy creamy pasta dish with chicken, broccoli, courgette and red pepper. The sauce is enriched with cream cheese.
The easy fix is what makes this recipe a winner. This is barely enough sauce for more than 2 diners and I have to serve 4, so I used 12 oz cream cheese, 1/2 cup butter,1 c milk. I cooked the red peppers with the chicken. I also tossed the broccoli in to cook with the pasta so it would be "easier" on the kids, skipped the zucchini, and topped off w/parmesan. - 20 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
At first I thought that this was going to be a flop because the butter and cream cheese just curdled and looked terrible. I stirred it with a wooden spoon and didn't know why it wasn't working. the recipe says to mix it over low heat until smooth. I was about to throw it away but I didn't have anything else to feed my kids and stuck with it, hoping to make something of it. I upped the heat to medium and used a fork to stir it. after five mins of this it finally starting looking like alfredo sauce and after that it was easy. 4* - 20 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Absolutely AMAZING! I have never had an Alfredo sauce like this one! The most expensive/fanciest restaurants do not compare. - 31 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
