One of the gals in our freezer co-op made these at one of the first swaps.  Super kid friendly and delicious.  I have been using the “rainbow” fettucini noodles, which my kids don’t know means they have added veggies in them!  🙂  Enjoy!

Fettucini Alfredo with Blackened Chicken

1pt of heavy whipping cream
1 stick of butter (not margarine)
2 oz cream cheese (not low or fat free)
1/2-3/4 cup Parmesan or Romano cheese
1 tsp garlic powder(more or less to taste)

enough chicken for your family


For the sauce: Whip cream, butter, and cream cheese together.  Bring to a simmer over medium heat.  Add Parmesan/Romano cheese.  Serve over noodles.  Let it cool, spoon into freezer bags, and put it in the freezer.  To serve:  Thaw.  Place in a saucepan on the stovetop, stir constantly till hot.  This CANNOT be reheated in the microwave or the cream and butter will separate.

For the chicken: Cut chicken into strips.  Sprinkle cajun seasoning (I get a big thing at Sam’s,Tones brand) over the chicken and saute in a skillet with butter over med-high heat.  The amount of seasoning is to taste…some people like it more spicy than others. Let it cool & place in a freezer bag.  To serve:  Thaw.  Reheat in a skillet with butter, just until heated through.
