This version of Brocolli Chicken Alfredo is 'healthier' than usual because I decided to use whole wheat pasta and the broccoli is good for you....right? I'm actually not sure if pasta is ever healthy but at least this recipe isn't loaded with cheese and grease.
Boil the pasta al Dante and steam the broccoli.
Prepare the chicken, season with red chili flakes, salt, fresh ground black pepper, white pepper and garlic.
Make the Alfredo sauce.
Put all the ingredients into a large pot, pour the sauce over it and mix.

I love to eat! I've been baking since before I was a teenager and exploring more with cooking for the past decade. This section of the site is dedicated to my experiments in the kitchen.
