One Pot Chicken Cheese Alfredo with Bacon and Peas

By  | 

Try this delicious one-pot Chicken Cheese Alfredo!

I thought I was in the kitchen by myself when I took a taste-test bite of my Chicken Cheese Alfredo and let out a satisfied “That’s Italian!” But I wasn’t. My youngest was there and demanded a bite, too. What’s a mama to do? I shared!

And Shay immediately grinned and parroted, “That’s Italian!” Then he wanted to know what Italian meant.

I told him, “Tonight it means dinner. Go get your brothers.”

I’m always on the look-out for delicious, easy meals I feel good about serving my three growing boys. True to the cliché, they eat a lot. I just didn’t expect they would be such pick-y eaters.

This one-pot Chicken Cheese Alfredo is a winner on all fronts!

The creamy, cheese-y sauce is divine with DaVinci Pasta Twists. I really like how the pasta swirls capture the sauce and still keep that satisfying pasta texture—there’s none of that over-cooked mush that happens with some pasta.

DaVinci pasta is really Italian pasta, made in Italy with the finest ingredients. Discerning mamas can taste the difference. It’s the perfect base for any pasta dish, including this Chicken Cheese Alfredo.

How to Make One Pot Chicken Alfredo

All my guys like chicken and I used pepper bacon to add a little extra kick of flavor.

Half and half, a splash of white wine, and chicken broth add dimension to the taste, too, and make it easy to include veggies—in this case, peas.

And Parmesan does its magic. Because. Cheese.

Comfort food in minutes leaves extra time for table talk. And little guys always have lots to say.

They also have lots of questions. At least my boys do. Especially Shay.

So I had more to explain about, “That’s Italian,” and I launched into a little geography lesson which included how different people eat different kinds of food.

Simple Alfredo Pasta

And I talked about how Alfredo sauce was supposedly first made by a man whose name was really Alfredo. He made a pasta dish with a creamy, buttery sauce to entice his wife to eat, after giving birth to their first son.

Then I had to define entice. “Coax, persuade, tempt,” I said.

And Shay wisely stated I’d never have to entice him to eat Italian Chicken Cheese Alfredo. He promised to always volunteer!
