This simple lightened-up instruction for chicken alfredo with spinach is certain to be a success. ALFREDOOOOOOO. Is there something higher than alimentary paste that’s drowning in butter and cream and cheese and a lot of cheese? i feel not. Is there something worse for that New Year’s Diet Resolution you’re dissimulation to keep? in all probability additionally not.


But hey, I’ve got you (and our completely REAL, no-I-have-NOT-been-binge-eating-this-pizza diet) lined.

I lightened up this creamy, cheese-y spinach alfredo sauce by nixing the cream altogether and instead employing a intermixture with skimmed milk. Chicken and spinach add some macromolecule (and alternative probably-important nutrients, blah, blah) and a few color to the combo, and at last we tend to skinny the sauce out a small amount by utilization a number of our nice, starchy alimentary paste water.

I’ve been all regarding these thirty minute meals of late. Nothing that needs over one pot! Nothing that needs ME to go away my house (snow = ugh) and attend the store! Nothing that doesn’t try fantastically with a really giant glass of wine! You catch my drift.

I’ve finally had the irritation with however broken our room is, and doing something that takes a large amount of your time or makes an enormous MEss simply makes me wish to drown my sorrows in margaritas.
