Chicken-Less Fettuccine Alfredo w/ Broccoli
I have made this Alfredo sauce before; it is always a hit. This time, I added Chicken-Less Strips from Trader Joes. I sautéed the strips in olive oil and garlic. I used to really love the brand Quorn (pronounced corn). They make great chicken substitutes. But when I became vegan, I had to say goodbye; all Quorn products contain egg whites. I was sad until I found the Trader Joes brand. Great in all recipes that call for chicken. The noodles are also from Trader Joes (I have been shopping there more often lately, as you can see!) They boil very quickly and have a hearty, whole grain flavor. You can actually taste the grains and for me that is a good thing. Pastas with enriched flour make me feel weighed down. The dish is topped with steamed broccoli. All in all, it took about 20 minutes to prepare!
