IntroductionSkip To The Recipe

Penne with chicken Alfredo.

After  the snow and hail commotion that we had two days ago in Phoenix, which did not last long of course and was beautiful to see and experience, yesterday quiet and cozy dinner prepared under 30 minutes was the end to a perfect day.
I had some left over roasted chicken, store-bought will be perfect,  added it to the Alfredo sauce with penne, of course pasta of choice at my house… and voila` a fast dinner in less than 20 minutes.  A nice crisp green salad to start the meal is always perfect.  I am enclosing a couple of pictures of the snow and hail on our cactus.
