Easy Alfredo

It doesn't get much easier than this--creamy, delicious Fettucine Alfredo in 8 minutes! This was the sample du jour a few weekends ago at the Oceanside Trader Joe's. ABF and I each picked up a bag. One bag has 2 servings, and it sold for 4.99, which is a bargain.

I was surprised to see the cooking time is exactly the same for stovetop and microwave. I wanted to do some light cleaning while it cooked, so I opted for microwave. Bring out the lovely IKEA serving platter (dishwasher/oven/microwave safe)--one of my best buys yet!

The pasta comes out in little "nests," and the chicken and sauce are frozen into separate bits. I was skeptical that it would come out well in the time alloted, but I worried for nothing. I stirred halfway through, but otherwise this dish was on auto-pilot.

I dished out half for dinner that night (along with leftover veggies and mixed greens) and put the other half in Tupperware for lunch the next day. Delicious both times! Of course, another round or two of fresh-cracked pepper didn't hurt, either.

This was delicious, simple, no-muss, no-fuss, and I will definitely pick up some more on my next time. Granted, it's not for every night, but when you want something that's very satisfying in a moderate portion, this is one to get.

What are some of your favorite Trader Joe's items?
