Count Down Chicken Fusilli
Redd Rockets Pizza Port
(Serves 4-6 People)
Sauce yields 4 cups
5 oz Alfredo Sauce Mix (unprepared dry mix it means)
1 cup Heavy Cream
1 cup Lowfat Mix
1 cup Water
2 oz Grated Parmesan Cheese (real stuff, not the Kraft powdered item please)
1 oz Sun-dried Tomato Crumbles (if you buy dried, you need to reconstitute)
3 oz Pesto Sauce (this one means PREPARED, i.e.- a wet sauce, not a dry mix)
2 lbs Dry Fusilli pasta (or any you like)
1 lb Sliced Smoked Chicken Breast (it is just as good without the chicken in my opinion)
Top cooked pasta with chicken and cover with sauce. The key to understanding this recipe is to know it is essentially a prepared alfredo sauce (so if you buy a prepared one, or know your own recipe, just use that), with a slight amount of prepared pesto mixed in. It is really simple when boiled down to that. The recipe above is complex because the alfredo amount refers to a dry mix (unprepared).
Note:If you already have a prepared alfredo sauce, omit the cream, milk, and water because they only apply if using a dry mix of alfredo.

Prepare the charcoals for grilling with the coals glowing hot. Roll each piece of dough out to approximately 1/8-inch thick. Brush lightly with olive oil on both sides.
