Ever Evolving Food Blog

Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.

All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Chicken & Shrimp Alfredo

This is one of those dishes that can be tweaked to your liking. You could use just chicken, just shrimp, add broccoli, or just have the linguine and Alfredo sauce if you want! I like it any way you serve it!

1/2 box whole wheat linguine
2 boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into bite-size pieces
1 pound shrimp, peeled & deveined
6 Tbs. butter
1 tsp. minced garlic
juice from one lime or 1 Tbs of lime juice
1 can(10 3/4 oz.) Campbell's Cream of Mushroom soup
1/2 cup 2% milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (I use Bertoli)
salt
extra-virgin olive oil

Boil a large pot of water with 2-3 Tbs of extra-virgin olive oil and 2 pinches of salt and boil linguine for 10 minutes. When it's finished, drain water and 'shock' the pasta with cold tap water. Drain and set aside.

Heat a saucepan on medium-high heat, melt 3 Tbs. butter and cook the chicken pieces until golden. In another, smaller saucepan, heat the other 3 Tbs. of butter, garlic, and lime juice on medium heat until bubbling. Put shrimp in and saute for ~3 minutes. Place cooked shrimp into the saucepan with the cooked chicken.

To the shrimp and chicken, now add the soup, milk, cheese, and linguine. Stir and mix well over medium-low heat until warmed through and well-blended.

This is a very creamy dish. It will seem a little sticky on your fork, but it's VERY creamy when you eat it. It's not too rich but has a really nice flavor. Enjoy!
