If you’re gluten-free, pasta is probably one of the things you missed from your diet first. There’s just nothing like it!
This is Braun’s favorite meal that I make. And it really is such a simple recipe.
The great thing about most pasta dishes is that they’re quick – or at least a meal you can make under 30 minutes. And, if you’re really anti-mess, this can easily be a 1 pot meal.

We really like the Trader Joes Rice Penne Noodles for this dish but any gluten-free pasta noodle works. If you aren’t a penne fan, throw in some fettucini or spaghetti noodles. There is no wrong noodle! Keep in mind that gluten-free noodles don’t keep as well as traditional pasta!
I like to also grill or pan fry chicken with mine but if you’re looking to make the dish vegetarian, just exclude the chicken. At the end I also like to toss in some basil or spinach – just a few leaves that wilt when tossed in the final dish! These are also optional. I just love the pop of color and the flavor!
And last, but not least, I love to sprinkle some Mrs. Dash ‘Original’ seasoning and add some gluten-free garlic bread for dipping!
Gluten-Free Olive Garden AlfredoPrint Recipe
- 1 Pint of Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1 Cube of Butter (1/2 cup butter)
- 2 Tbsp Cream Cheese
- 2 tsp Minced Garlic
- 3/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese*
- 2 large chicken breasts
- fresh cracked pepper
- Mrs. Dash seasoning
- handful of your favorite green (I also love adding cooked broccoli)
*Parmesan cheese can be grainy. The finer the grate on your cheese, the better it will melt and the smoother your Alfredo sauce will be.
In a small saucepan combine the heavy cream, butter, and cream cheese. Bring to a boil and then immediately turn the heat to low and simmer for 2 minutes.
Add in garlic and simmer for a minute or 2.
Add in parmesan cheese and allow entire mixture to simmer for 15 minutes or until smooth. Whisk or stir occasionally. Your sauce will begin to thicken.
Once done, pour over cooked pasta and add in chicken, greens, broccoli, or eat as is!
