Creamy Baked Penne AlfredoComments : 1 Posted in : Mains on by : Christine Tags: family, one dish
Creamy home made Alfredo is easier than you think to whip up and so much better than jarred. The original name of this recipe was Baked Ziti Alfredo with Chicken but you really can add whatever protein you want or make it vegetarian. It is really a gorgeous blank canvas for leftover turkey, roasted vegetables or today’s butcher block special. 🙂 I also use mini penne because I like it better in a baked dish but use whatever pasta shape you like best. I just don’t recommend spaghetti types if you bake it.
The original recipe was sent to me by my friend Terri and was something she found on Delish. It makes a lot but easily halves. Where it calls for chicken just substitute any other protein or saute (or roast) up some veggies. When I tested it I used some ham chunks and a jar of mushrooms I had lying around. See my notes I have a lot of suggestions (upgrade your tuna casserole!) Oh and if you are halving it use a 8″ x 8″ pan or similar sized casserole dish.
