Italian Grilled Chicken with Creamy Red Sauce


16 oz. pasta noodles
1/2 bottle of Italian salad dressing
2-3 chicken breasts, thawed
1 recipe of Alfredo Sauce
8 oz. marinara sauce (I used tomato basil sauce)
Parmesan cheese, grated

Alfredo Sauce:

1 8oz. block cream cheese (I use reduced fat)
1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. + milk
1/2 c. + fresh Parmesan cheese
garlic salt

1. Marinate in a ziplock bag with bottled Italian dressing over night.

2. Preheat grill, boil salted water for pasta, and begin making alfredo sauce.

3. Alfredo: In a small saucepan, combine cream cheese and butter until melted. Don't be alarmed if the fat separates and makes the mixture look like curdled milk! Add milk and stir until mixture becomes smooth. Add Parmesan and seasonings and whisk until cheese melts and becomes combined. Add more milk and/or Parmesan until sauce reaches desired flavor and consistency (ie. thicker, thinner, more cheesy, etc.) You really can't go wrong! Season again, as needed.

4. Boil pasta and cook until al dente.

5. Heat marinara until warm and combine alfredo with as much marinara as desired.

6. Slice chicken into thin strips and serve over pasta and sauce. Top with fresh Parmesan.
