{Cajun Chicken Fettucine Alfredo}

I love cooking.

After a long day at work sometimes it’s nice to come home and do something safe and productive with a cleaver.

Lately I’ve been big on making sauces from scratch that way I am completely aware of what it is I’m putting into my body. So when I was scouting Pinterest several months back and came across this recipe with homemade alfredo sauce, I was in.

To make this easy on me and you, I’m going to post the web link to the recipe right here: http://comfortablydomestic.com/2011/03/05/cajun-chicken-alfredo/

Then post a picture of the end results and your grocery list here:

1 C. (1/2 pint) grape tomatoes, halved

¼ C. dry white wine (or chicken broth)
