ALFREDO SAUCE
  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, melt down the butter with the garlic.
  2. Add the heavy cream, Italian seasoning, salt, black pepper, and nutmeg. Whisk together and bring to a simmer for a few minutes to thicken.
  3. Add the parmesan and whisk again until the sauce thickens. Once it thickens, mix in the fresh parsley and take off the heat.
  4. Add the cooked pasta and mix.
  5. Plate with the chicken and more fresh parmesan on top!

It was great and so creamy.

Aww thank you for the lovely feedback Sarah!!

This was amazing! The flavor and ease to make was fantastic. My kids and husband loved it and surprisingly we had leftovers which were just as good the next day. Definitely a new family favorite!

This was fantastic!!! Whole family loved it. A great mix of flavors and easy to prep and cook. Definitely keeping this recipe, thank you!!!

I made this tonight. It was so good! The chicken was seasoned perfectly. The pasta was a bit greasy- I will use less butter next time.
