Posts Tagged ‘Chicken Bacon Alfredo’

Tonight’s video is not my favorite. Here’s why, yesterday family stuff ran far later than expected, so we didn’t cook anything. That meant today’s video felt more rushed. I just don’t think that the video does the meal itself justice.


Today’s meal, from the PaleOMG website, is a Chicken Bacon Alfredo.

One of my favorite meals as a kid used to be fettucini alfredo with chicken. Until Paleo came along for me, I didn’t know it was possible to have a “pasta” dish without actual pasta. Spaghetti squash has completely changed that view for me, and it is delicious!

For the recipe, I used an Acorn Squash as opposed to Delicata Squash (supermarket availability), and aside from that the recipe was done pretty much to specs.

In the video, I made some dumb choices (mashing spaghetti squash pasta down in the dish, bad explaining of steps, letting segments run too long), but I blame those on how tired I am today. The next video will be better, or at least I promise to try! 🙂

Bottom line, the kitchen smells amazing, I got to eat some bacon tonight, and I really enjoyed the few bites of this meal I had tonight!
