Ingredients

  • 6 medium size zucchinis I always count one per person
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan Cheese shredded
  • 1 stick butter or half of a Kerrygold butter block
  • 1/4 heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic I may have put a bit more because I love the taste of garlic
  • 2 handfuls of fresh spinach
  • sliced chicken strips I add about 2 oz of chicken per serving

Instructions

  • I started by cutting all of my zucchini into noodles using my KitchenAid Spiralizer.
  • In a medium saucepan, I added these ingredients: cream cheese, parmesan cheese, butter, heavy cream, water, and minced garlic.
  • I cooked that on the stove top over medium heat until all the ingredients melted together. I stirred in to make sure all the cream cheese melted with no lumps left in the sauce.
  • While the sauce was cooking, I added all the zucchini noodles to a large pan with about a cup of water and steamed them over medium heat with a lid on the pan. The noodles only take about 5 to 8 minutes to become soft and ready to go.
  • I heated up my precooked chicken strips. You can do this in the microwave or over the stove top. (as a time saver, I always purchase the precooked frozen chicken strips for busy days) I add about 2 oz of chicken per serving. The Alfredo sauce can generously serve up to 8 servings depending on how much you much you add to each bowl or plate. I prefer no more than 6 servings because we really, really like this sauce recipe.
  • Next, I add about two handfuls of spinach to the Alfredo sauce. Feel free to add more or less depending on your tastes. I plan to add more next time. It was really good! It only takes a minute or two for the spinash to become soft in the hot Alfredo sauce.
  • Next add the cooked chicken strips to the sauce.
  • Drain the water in the zucchini noodles.
  • Serve the Low Carb and Keto Chicken Alfredo Pasta by placing a small amount of zucchini noodles on a plate or bowl and then topping it with the sauce mixture.
  • Serve warm and enjoy!
