Jerk Chicken Alfredo

My friend always teases me about girls only ordering pasta whenever they go to restaurants; but, who would give up such a wonderful thing when they have the chance to have it. I had this dish when I visited a restaurant and I am very proud to say that I actually order the same thing every time I go there. Because I enjoy it so much, I decided I make it at home. What better thing to do?

I started working out last week and this might go against what my diet should be, but, I also think we deserve to please ourselves sometimes. Plus, I haven’t made this in a very long time. So you can definitely say I’m missing out on two of my favourite things, jerk and cheese. Time for some soul food!

This recipe is versatile – you can make it as spicy or as cheesy as you want. And guess what? It takes less than 30 minutes to prepare
