Keto Fettuccine Alfredo


Step 1Prepare the crepes. Add the ricotta, eggs, and salt into a blender. Process end until smooth. Set aside.

Step 2Heat a lightly buttered crepe or nonstick sauté pan over medium-low heat.

Step 3Depending on the size of the pan, add just short of 1/4 cup (60 mL) of batter to the pan and spread it evenly. If necessary, pick up the pan and deliberately tilt it in a variety of directions, directing the flow of the batter around the base of the pan until it completely covers the base of the pan, like a very thin pancake. Once the edges start to brown and curl, loosen the crepe with a spatula and flip it to brown the other side. Repeat this process, placing each completed crepe on a paper towel.

Step 4Stack the crepes into little stacks of 4 or 5; then roll them into fairly tight little logs. Slice each crepe every 1/2 inch (1 cm) for something approximating a fettuccine noodle. You could double that for something like a pappardelle, or go much thinner for a linguini or even an angel hair. Once cut, pick the noodles up and “fluff” them, so that they are a nice little pile of noodles. Set aside.

Step 5Meanwhile, cook the chicken. Slice it into thin strips and season with salt. Grease a large pan with a tablespoon of ghee and heat over a medium-high heat. Once hot, add the sliced chicken in a single layer and cook until opaque and lightly browned from all sides. Steam the broccoli or boil in hot salted water briefly for 3-5 minutes, until crisp-tender (I used a microwave and cooked it for 3 minutes).

Step 6Work in batches if needed - do not overfill the pan. Once cooked, transfer into a bowl and set aside. Place the butter in the pan where you cooked the chicken and add minced garlic. Cook until fragrant and pour in the cream.

Step 7Add the pepper, salt, Italian herbs and stir until combined.

Step 8Add grated Parmesan cheese and mix util creamy.

Step 9Add the steamed broccoli florets, cooked chicken and cook for 30-60 seconds just to heat through. Take off the heat and set aside.

Step 10Serve with the sliced crepe fettuccine. To store, let it cool down and keep refrigerated for up to 3 days (meat with broccoli separately from the crepe fettuccine).
