100% addicting this Creamy Cheesy Chicken Alfredo is quick and easy to whip up and is a family favorite for all ages.
So this is actually a copycat recipe. I didn’t put that in the title because the restaurant that it’s known from is regional so I wasn’t sure if anyone would actually know what it is! But nonetheless the pasta is one of our favorites and I couldn’t help but share.
Met have the bar and grill type restaurant that is called Grizzly’s and it’s pretty popular around the state. My husband is addicted, not just to the restaurant but to this pasta.
At the restaurant it’s actually called Bear Creek Pasta. But for the sake of the blog I’m calling it Creamy Cheesy Chicken Alfredo because essentially that’s exactly what it is.
There’s is actually made with angel hair spaghetti but I decided to be a rebel and not do that this time. Usually I do but I wanted to switch it up a little bit but you can absolutely make it with that if you prefer.
So pasta is drenched in an Alfredo sauce mixed with chicken, sautéed mushrooms and garlic. It’s thrn topped with mounds of Monterey Jack and mozzarella cheeses and that melts all over the top. It’s not stirred in and that’s what I looooove about it. It creates like a crust of cheese and it’s to die for.
You can surely adapt this Creamy Cheese Chicken Alfredo any way that you like. Use jarred alfredo sauce rather than homemade. Although I must admit, I particularly LOVE my homemade Alfredo sauce so you’re going to at the very least give it a try.
Maybe you could add some bacon or sausage. This pasta is made to be tailored. But eating it just the way it is, is and always has been my favorite way. Serve with a breadstick for dunking in the sauce and just devour. Those are my words of wisdom for the day!
