I made Cajun Chicken Alfredo the other night, it was delicious!!

It would be good with any shape pasta I think!

A family favorite is Taco Pasta Salad, It is DELICIOUS with shredded chicken or sliced steak in place of the ground beef

Another family favorite is Baked Pasta and Smoked Sausage...

What kind of pasta are you buying?  There are hundreds of different kinds of plain noodles you can jazz up with fresh veggies and meat.

I made a lobster alfredo the other night...you could use shrimp instead of lobster. Homemade alfredo is better (IMO) than canned!

 Buttered pasta

  • 2 chicken bouillon cubes 
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 8 ounces egg noodles
  1. Bring water, 2 boullion cubes and 1/2 stick of butter to boil using med to high heat.
  2. Add egg noodles.
  3. Cook until noodles are desired texture.
  4. (About 6-8 minutes) During last minute of cooking add remaining 1/2 stick of butter
  5. You may add additional butter if desired. Also you may use 1 can of chicken broth instead of bullion. I suggest using bullion.
