I love a good luscious, rich and creamy pasta as much as anyone else. When I think of how much I used to consume of it at one point in my life, the lining of my gut inevitably shudders. Not just because of the crazy calorie-load but because of just how unhealthy the whole dish is – heavy processed carbs and full in saturated fats! Naturally, after just a few forkfuls I felt uncomfortably bloated and oddly unsettled. And I know I am not the only one.
That being said, I still love me a good creamy pasta sauce and because I just cannot palate/digest restaurant sauces anymore I had to experiment and come up with an alternative. A few kitchen disasters later, I have this … a healthy and light, low-calorie, more nutritious version of Chicken Pasta in Alfredo sauce
Note : the quantities of ingredients used are because I aimed at making enough for two meals for TWO people (yes I use my friends as guinea pig tasters). Halve them if you’re cooking for yourself only and it’ll make enough for 2 meals worth. This is especially useful if you’re a crazy busy-bee like myself and can’t always cook wholesome meals daily.
