Pesto Chicken Alfredo is a marriage between two great Italian pasta recipes. The subtle creamy flavor of a rich Alfredo sauce recipe and the brilliant texture, color and freshness of the pesto.
I can think of only a few culinary marriages that are better.
Using both techniques of homemade pesto and the original Alfredo Sauce recipe created by Alfredo himself and you are about to partake in the creation of a masterpiece.
Make the homemade pesto first. You don’t need a lot and you can always use it for other recipes such as a dollop in your Minestrone soup.
Then begin with the Alfredo.
