Making Pasta… Success!

I started off this learning project with something easy. I made chicken alfredo! I have made pasta many times before but this time I wanted to find a healthier alternative to make as this is one of my favourite things to eat!

I know how to make pasta already so I started off by boiling some water and finding some pasta in my cupboard. Whole wheat pasta would probably be a better choice but unfortunately, I didn’t have any at home. The tricky part was finding a healthy alfredo sauce but thanks to Pinterest, I found a recipe.

Ingredients:

  • olive oil (a healthier fat, or you’re welcome to use butter for the flavor)
  • fresh garlic (a must!!)
  • flour (to thicken)
  • chicken broth (more flavorful than milk; you can also sub in veggie stock)
  • low-fat milk (you can use any milk, even soy)
  • Parmesan cheese (if you freshly grate it, it will be more flavorful

I also grilled up some chicken with olive oil and garlic. Then I mixed everything together and topped it all off with some parsley. The dish was pretty good. I don`t really think it wads that healthy but it tasted delicious so I didn`t mind!

So I think my first recipe was a success. I found it really easy to find a recipe online and the recipe itself was pretty easy! Can`t wait to find a new recipe for next week!

This girl is going to learn how to…

COOK

Now you think a 21-year-old would know how to do such things but… I don’t. Sure I can make some Kraft dinner or some scrambled eggs but ask me to make a whole meal from scratch, now that would be a problem. Soon I will be living on my own and I would like to know how to make a couple meals. I know the basics like making pasta and I know how to fry chicken. I just do not really know how to make a complete and healthy meal. After researching on Pinterest I have found many healthy recipes that I can’t wait to try out!

Over the next few weeks, I am going to cook one meal a weak and post photos of the food I make. I am going to rate it on a five-point scale. I’m going to rate taste, health factor, how easy it was to make, and an overall rating. Maybe by the end, I’ll even video me making a meal or two! Anywho, I want to be a pro chef by the time I’m done! Wish me luck!
