Jalapeño Popper Fettuccine Alfredo

Jalapeño Popper Fettuccine Alfredo: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

Fettuccine Alfredo with the flavors of a jalapeño popper, makes for a super creamy pasta with lots of flavor. This pasta would also be delicious with some chicken added to it.

When making this dish, if you take the seeds out of the jalapeños it will have just a subtle spice. If you leave the seeds in it will have a decent amount of spice. Or you can leave one jalapeño with seeds and one without seeds for the perfect amount of spice, like I did.

Jalapeño Popper Fettuccine Alfredo
Ingredients:
1/2 pound fettuccine, uncooked
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 small onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 jalapeños, diced (seeds removed if desired)
8 ounces cream cheese, softened and cut into pieces
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
4 slices turkey bacon, cooked and crumbled

Directions:
Cook pasta according to package directions and drain.

While pasta is cooking, melt butter in a large saucepan, over medium-high heat. Sauté onions until softened and starting to brown, about 5-10 minutes. Add in the garlic and jalapeños and cook for about 30 seconds, or until the garlic is fragrant. Slowly pour in the heavy cream, stirring constantly. Add in the cream cheese and stir until melted. Continue to stir constantly until the mixture thickens.

Add in the cheddar and Parmesan cheese, stirring until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat and stir in the bacon.

Once the pasta is cooked and drained add to the Alfredo sauce and stir to combine. If the sauce is too thick add a bit more heavy cream.

Enjoy!!!
