INGREDIENTS FOR SUN-DRIED TOMATO ALFREDO PASTA

  • Olive oil – we used extra virgin olive oil, but you can also use coconut or avocado oil.
  • Boneless chicken breast – if needed, you can also use boneless chicken tenders, shredded rotisserie chicken, spicy sausage, Italian sausage or shrimp.
  • Butter – we have also used vegan butter which turns out just as delicious!
  • Pasta – What is great about this alfredo with sundried tomatoes recipe is you can use any pasta of your choosing.  However, with creamy pasta such as this, we love to use pasta shells that hold on to the cream sauce well.  Pasta shells such as penne pasta, fettuccini, rigatoni, and more are our favorites. 
  • Minced garlic – or use 2-3 garlic cloves.
  • Sun-dried tomatoes – You can use any type of sun-dried tomatoes for this pasta recipe. However, we recommend using sun-dried tomatoes with oil. If you can’t find tomatoes packed with oil, you can also use fresh tomatoes that have been roasted in the oven.
  • Spinach – If you don’t have spinach, you can also use kale or Swiss chard.
  • Heavy cream – you can also use half and half, if needed.
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Seasoning – to add a pinch of flavor to this tomato alfredo sauce, we added garlic pepper, salt, and a few red pepper flakes.
  • Fresh basil – garnish, optional.
