Homemade Cheesy Alfredo Sauce (& Applebees 3 Cheese Chicken Penne)

Cheesy Alfredo Sauce:
3 Tbsp Butter
1/4 cup Flour
1.5 Cups Milk
1.5 cups cheese (I used Colby-Jack)
1/2 tsp parsley
Directions:  Over medium heat, melt butter, then stir in flour mixing well.  Add milk, mixing well with a whisk.  Stir in cheese and additional spices (parsley, salt, pepper).  And, oila, the best alfredo sauce ever!  I always thought it would be much harder to make, but this was super easy.
Three Cheese Chicken Penne
(Note:  I am NOT claiming this tastes just like Applebee’s, only that it satisfied my craving at the time)
Penne Noodles
Chicken breast, cut into thin strips
Cheesy Alfredo Sauce
Diced Tomatoes
Directions:  Pour some Olive Oil in a skillet and cook the chicken strips, while you prepare the Penne noodles in a separate pan.  Add seasoning as desired to chicken at this time.  When chicken is done cooking, stir in the Cheesy alfredo sauce and penne noodles.  Simmer for about 5-10 minutes.  Top with basil, parmesan cheese, and diced tomatoes.

    Hey, I came across this article on green cleaning this week, and thought it might make a good addition to your budget friendly stuff–I used the baking soda/vinegar/boiling water mix instead of Drano to unclog the drain in my bathtub–without chemicals and without the cost of them. :)

I love to hear your feedback and value your thoughts! All I ask is that we remain respectful and civil, even when we disagree. Thanks so much for reading. I appreciate you!

Thank you for joining in the discussion!
