Parmesan Chicken Alfredo with Peas

Parmesan Chicken Alfredo with Peas

This dinner was supposed to be Spaghetti Carbonara with Peas, but as I munched on my second slice of bacon at breakfast, I asked C how much of the bacon he had cooked. Turns out, it was all of it. Grocery shopping isn't the easiest in a ski town. I could get some $12 bacon at the closest grocery store, this isn't center cut heritage pork, this is the same bacon you could get for $4 at any grocery chain. We had plans to go to the "big" grocery, which is about a 30 minute drive the next morning, so I needed to improvise. I had some chicken in the freezer and Parmesan Chicken Alfredo with Peas was born. This meal is comforting and easy to prepare, feel free to use any pasta you like, I used thin spaghetti because it was supposed to be Carbonara. It would be lovely with penne or fettuccine as well.
