Garlic Asiago Italian Sauce, Chicken Alfredo Worth Staying Home

chicken garlic asiago Italian sauce fettuccine pasta on a plate

Take off your skinny jeans and put on your soft pants. You’re eating in tonight. No more ordering chicken fettucine Alfredo from a menu. You’re going to make it so delicious at home that you won’t be happy with it in any restaurant.

My sister, Heidi, gave me this recipe in 2008. I’ve adjusted it to include finely diced onion, basil, and more cream so that the sauce is smoother and velvety. If you don’t like garlic or you plan to do a lot of smooching later, you can leave the garlic out.

Pasta shouldn’t get all the fun—dip Chicken In A Biskit Chicken Strips in the cheesy sauce. Or pick up a crusty loaf of your favorite bread for soaking up the goodness. One of the best places for that in the Midwest is Breadico Sourdough Bread Company in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Sweet wishes,

Our favorite way to use this sauce is with fettuccine noodles and seasoned chicken breasts. It's also a terrific dipping sauce for crusty breads and chicken strips.
