Chicken, Bacon and Spinach Fettuccine Alfredo

Pasta is such a simple dish to make, you can literally throw anything you like into it and it makes it something special.

I love to pack my pasta dishes full of veg and goodness, but sometimes I let us have a naughty binge with our pasta.

The Chicken Alfredo is my twist on a classic carbonara and is super delicious. Served with a side salad or a slice of garlic bread it is a wonderful treat for all.
