Carba-Nada Chicken Alfredo

So, I finally tried the Carba-Nada pasta noodles. They are lower in carb than regular noodles. 1 1/2 cup is 18 net carbs, well that will make a meal, right? Yes. It did. And, the best part about it, it tastes like pasta!! No kidding. You can buy this on Amazon or Netrition. My advice, go with Netrition as the package I got on Amazon was mostly air! But, even so, it was SO good. I made chicken alfredo with it and for once it tasted like it should (normally zoodles go in there!) but I did miss the zoodle crunch I’d gotten used to! haha! Anyway, here is my pic and my recipe. I do hope you enjoy and will try these noodles for yourself. Here is a link on Netrition:

Ok, now for the recipe and end results:

INGREDIENTS:

3 lbs boneless chicken tenderloins

1/2 cup water (or more as needed to cook chicken. May also use stock if you have it)

Salt, Pepper to taste

1/2 tsp savory

1/2 tsp dried basil

1/8 tsp dried oregano

1 tbsp dried parsley (for the cooking chicken and for topping the dish, but if you have fresh go with it!)

1 1/2 cups Carba-Nada pasta (DRY)

1 Jar Ragu Alfredo Sauce

2 TBSP grated Parmesan

DIRECTIONS:

Place water and all seasonings, saving some parsley, into a pressure cooker and add chicken. Cook for 30 minutes (45 if frozen). You may also cook this on the stove until it is done. πŸ™‚

When the chicken is done, boil two cups of water (maybe more if you need it), salted and add pasta.

Shred chicken and put into a pot.

When noodles are cooked to your liking (al-dente) drain and add to the chicken.

Add sauce, heat through.

Add grated Parm and allow that to melt through.

Top with parsley and enjoy. πŸ™‚
