Chicken-Pepper Alfredo

When I want a lighter dinner, I use lean turkey bacon in this recipe. It gives the pasta that richness you want without all the extra fat. —Courtney Harris, Denton, Texas

    I love this recipe but I used garlic alfredo sauce and just added a red pepper and added other half a jar of sauce to it . It was the best chicken alfredo I have made.

    My kids loved this I did have to sneak in the mushrooms I cut them into small pieces I also used crushed red pepper from McCormick, in the sauce I used 2 tablespoons to give it really spicy but if you want less spice just add half it was a hit I doubled everything to feed 9 and it was an all-around hit though

    I couldn't find roasted red pepper alfredo sauce so I used sun-dried tomato. Also, I left off the onions and doubled the mushrooms. It was delish! Reheated the leftovers in a skillet and added a jar of sundried tomatoes (including the oil) and about half a jar traditional alfredo sauce and it was amazing! I'll add the tomatoes at the start next time. I used turkey bacon, as suggested, but I think regular bacon (more sodium) would be better.

    Very quick and tasty. To save time, I use pre-cooked bacon.

    This is very good. I couldn't find the roasted red pepper alfredo sauce so I used a garlic alfredo sauce and just added some sliced red peppers to the skillet. Enjoyed by everyone
