Healthier version of a regular fettuccine alfredo. Low-calorie, low-fat cauliflower alfredo sauce mixed with sun-dried tomatoes, basil, spinach in this delicious chicken fettuccine pasta recipe.
Drain sun-dried tomatoes from oil and chop them into smaller bits.
In a large pan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil (reserved from the sun-dried tomatoes jar) on medium-high heat and saute garlic, chopped sun-dried tomatoes (drained from oil), and thinly sliced chicken breast (lightly covered in about ½ teaspoon of paprika, for color) for 2-3 minutes until chicken is cooked through, turning it over a couple of times. Sprinkle the salt over the chicken and more paprika while cooking.
Remove from heat. Immediately add fresh spinach, cover the skillet with the lid, and let everything rest off heat, until spinach wilts.
Add cooked pasta to the skillet with the creamy sauce, and stir to combine.
At this point, you might have to add more reserved cooked pasta water because the creamy sauce will be too thick (do not add all water at once - you might need just a small mount).
Again, taste and season the pasta with more basil and salt, if needed. Add more paprika if you want your sauce to have a nice red-ish color.
