My best shot at Outback Steakhouse “No Rules” Pasta with Chicken
Approx. 400-500 Calories

A couple weeks ago, I went to Redding to visit some of my best friends. We went to Outback Steakhouse and one of my friends got the No Rules Fettuccine Pasta - and it was the most delicious pasta I’ve ever had! It had a delicious garlic flavor, but it was also spicy! I had never had spicy pasta before. The next day, we tried to replicate it and had great success! Tonight I decided to make it for my husband to see how he liked it - and he ate every last bit :)
On a side note, the green beans are left over from Thanksgiving - bacon and onions sauteed together, and then mixed in with the green beans, butter, garlic salt, & pepper.

Ingredients:
1 jar Classico Roasted Garlic Alfredo
Cayenne Pepper (be CAREFUL with how much you use!)
Black Pepper
White Pepper
Garlic Salt
Italian herb mix
Whole wheat spaghetti

Directions:
1. Bring a pot of water to a boil; once boiling, put pasta in the pot and cook until noodles are soft.
2. While you are bringing the water to a boil, pour jar of sauce into a small saucepan. Add all seasonings to sauce IN MODERATION. Cayenne pepper can EASILY ruin your sauce. add a little bit at a time and stir after each time you add it until it’s at the right spiciness.
3. I added chicken to my sauce, but that’s totally optional.
4. Strain water from pasta when it’s done and mix with pasta sauce and enjoy!

Delicious!
