- Alfredo Pasta
I have been craving pasta and shrimp for a few weeks now so I decided last week that I would plan a meal prep around my cravings as I approach my final weeks of pregnancy. When planning my meals I always try to select food items that I will most likely not get tired of throughout the week and meal prep time is important for me as well. I am not for spending hours in the kitchen slaving over a hot stove. Alfredo is a convenient meal that I can just warm up servings of throughout the week.

- Chicken Breast
- Frozen Cooked Shrimp
- Penne Noodles (or Noodles of your choice)
- Parmesan Romano Cheese
- Ragu Classic Alfredo sauce (use as needed to supplement sauce if needed)
- Heavy Cream
- Salted Butter
- Seasonings: Italian, Basil, Garlic Salt, Pepper, Old Bay
Prep Time: 30 minutes
When making my Alfredo I basically prepare my own sauce using cheese, butter, and heavy cream. I season it to my liking and supplement with Ragu classic Alfredo sauce if needed to stretch my sauce. I had originally intended to steam my broccoli and mix it into my Alfredo but completely forgot and missed this step. This week I will have my broccoli on the side, topped with grated parmesan.
