  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 container (10 ounces) refrigerated reduced-fat Alfredo pasta sauce

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Prepare this recipe using 3/4 pound uncooked peeled deveined large shrimp in place of the chicken. In step 2, cook shrimp in sprayed skillet until pink and firm.
  • tip 2
    Use 2 cups frozen bell pepper pieces (from a 16-ounce bag) and a 10-ounce package of frozen asparagus cuts instead of the fresh vegetables. Thaw vegetables before using.
