One of the first things I knew I would need to do after going Gluten Free was find a good pasta. Why? I love pasta. It just did not love me back. My first attempt at gluten free chicken Alfredo was a success, even my husband loved it! I used Tinkyada Brown Rice Spirals; however, if you do not need to eat gluten free just use a pound of your favorite pasta!
This time, I used my white sauce but added Parmesan to it. I have to say that this is one of my favorite sauces, the only downside to using a cream cheese based sauce is it hardens quickly, so this is best eaten fresh not reheated.
Let’s get on to this delicious recipe!

This sounds very yummy! You have some very good looking food posts for somebody who hates cooking 🙂 I love to cook and make things homemade-I recently braved different breads (fear or something kept me from doing so in the past.) I will have to try your chicken alfredo except using fresh garlic, I don’t add salt to much as we have a family member with high blood pressure.
Cooking has definitely grown on me since I started this site! lol I bet fresh garlic would be fabulous!
Fresh garlic is awesome! I have always loved garlic but used to buy the powder and the minced garlic. Recently I decided to try buying the fresh. It is stronger and also is great if you forgot to marinade any roast. Put slits in the roast and put some garlic cloves in the slits and mmmm. Often fresh garlic cloves are 50 cents for a bunch so it is pretty cheap at the store. The whole house loves garlic, my kids even look forward to the garlic festival when it comes to town in October.
