Zucchini Alfredo

Ingredients:

  • 8 zucchinis
  • 3 medium chicken breasts
  • 1 cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup  grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 sticks
  • 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil

Instructions:

Zoodles

Make zucchini into “noodles” using a vegetable spiralizer (Optional: spread out to dry out on a paper towel before proceeding.) Sauté zoodles on medium heat in a frying pan with 3 tablespoons melted butter, stirring occasionally. The zoodles are done when they turn a translucent green, about 5 minutes. Taste a zoodle strand to make sure they are the desired texture. If too al dente for your liking, sauté a few more minutes. Remove from heat and lightly salt and pepper.

Parmasan Chicken

Chop raw chicken breasts into bite-size pieces and begin to sauté on medium heat in a splash of olive oil. Cook the chicken until it is no longer pink in the center. Toss the chicken in 1/3 cup of grated Parmesan than finish browning. Chicken should reach an internal temp of 165°F. Remove from heat.

Alfredo Sauce

On medium heat, melt 2 sticks of butter in a small saucepan. Once butter is melted, add one cup heavy whipping cream, stirring constantly. Bring to simmer, but not to a boil. Add 1 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese and 1/2 tsp Italian Seasoning and stir until the cheese is melted.
