Chicken Fajita Alfredo – ready in 15 minutes! All the flavors of fajitas tossed with pasta and an easy homemade Alfredo sauce. Chicken onion, bell pepper, fajita seasoning, heavy cream, pasta and parmesan cheese. Everyone loved this! It has already been requested for dinner again! No prep and ready in 15 minutes. GREAT weeknight meal!
I am totally addicted to this Chicken Fajita Alfredo! It only takes about 15 minutes from start to finish, and it is even gluten-free!! We ate this last weekend, and I am adding it to the menu for this week too. It is seriously that good.
This Chicken Fajita Alfredo has all the flavors of fajitas. It tasted just like the fajitas I order at my favorite Mexican restaurant. I LOVED the addition of pasta and a ridiculously simple alfredo sauce. Pasta + Fajitas = YUM! The whole recipe only has 7 ingredients – chicken, onion, bell pepper, fajita seasoning, heavy cream, Parmesan cheese and pasta. Can’t beat that!
I cooked the chicken, vegetables and sauce while the pasta cooked. Once the pasta was done cooking, everything was ready to be tossed together. I loved that I didn’t have to do any prep work and dinner was ready in 15 minutes. Perfect weeknight meal!
For the pasta, I used Ronzoni Gluten Free® Penne Rigate. It tasted just like regular white pasta. No one would ever know it was gluten free. The pasta is made with brown rice, white rice, corn and quinoa. It is that unique multigrain blend that gives it that white pasta taste. You also get 19 grams of whole grains in every serving!
You prepare Ronzoni Gluten Free® pasta pretty much the same way you prepare regular pasta. Gluten free pasta is a little more sensitive than regular pasta, so make sure to follow the directions for recommended water amounts and be sure to rinse the pasta in warm water.
