Ingredients

    McCormick Alfredo Mix or any other brand
    2 C. 1% Milk
    3 T. Butter
    1 Chicken Breast
    1 C. or half of a large onion
    1 C. zucchini or one small zucchini
    1 large tomato or one can petite diced (drained)

    In separate pan, saute:


    Canned Tomatoes, 1 can (remove)
    Sweet peppers (bell), 1 cup, chopped (remove)
    Zucchini, 1 cup, sliced (remove)
    Onions, raw, 0.5 large (remove)
    Garlic, 4 tsp (remove)
    Chicken Breast, no skin, 1 breast, bone and skin removed (remove)
    Cottage Cheese, 1% Milkfat, 1 cup (not packed) (remove)

Directions

In pan cut chicken breast into cubes and cook completely with onions and garlic. As chicken begins to cook thru, add zucchini and bell peppers (red & yello). Add water at any time if necessary to keep from drying out (I also used a tiny bit of olive oil)

As chicken begins to cook, follow directions for McCormick Alfredo Mix or any other brand (per directions I used, mix Alfredo mix with 2 C. 1% Milk and 3 T. Butter and heat on stove)

When chicken and vegetables are completely done, add tomotoes and cottage cheese. Cook on stove until most of water has evaporated and cheese has melted. Add alfredo sauce.

Serve on Whole Wheat pasta. Serves apx although various according to your sauce preference. You can also exclude the chicken for an all veggie meal or use one italian sausage link for added spice. Cook completely with onions and garlic and cut into tiny peices. The smaller the peices the farther one link goes for everyone! Great trick to get tons of flavor with minimal calories. Enjoy!
