I used Fettuccine pasta for this, which is used while making Alfredo pasta traditionally. I always feel that fettuccine tastes its best when served in a rich and creamy Parmesan cheese sauce made with real cream and butter. You can use any sort of pasta actually, any shape or any type (whole wheat, gluten-free etc).

I  do not make this very often even though a good Alfredo has always been my favorite. It might not be the healthiest dish, but it’s soo yummy. 🙂

I grilled the chicken breast with lots of flavorful spices. Ah! the aroma when grilling the chicken was just unbearable, my husband was like, ‘forget the pasta, we will just have the grilled chicken’ because he seriously couldn’t wait. 😀 But he gave this pasta an A+ after tasting it, even though he is not an ardent pasta fan. 🙂

I used bell peppers, onion, green onions, garlic and some of my favorite spices while making the sauce. Along with that, to get a thick and creamy sauce I added three types of cheese-parmesan, cheddar and feta cheese. The combination of these three cheeses with the cream and butter was just too good. This glossy, thick alfredo sauce sticks to all the nooks and crevices of the fettucini making it taste awesome. Do try it. Here goes the recipe:

Ingredients:

For the chicken breast:

  • 400 g chickens breast, boneless, skinless
  • 1 tsp cajun spice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper powder
  • 1 tsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic paste
  • 2 tbsp yoghurt
  • Salt to taste

For the Alfredo Sauce:

  • 1 red bell pepper/ capsicum
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 3 white part of green onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp black pepper

  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese 
  • 1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

350 g fettuccine

NOTES:

✔️ Be very careful when adding salt to the Alfredo sauce because the parmesan cheese, feta cheese and cajun n spice will have salt in it.
