Kentucky Bourbon Alfredo: It’s Out of This World

This Kentucky Bourbon Alfredo tastes like and has the texture of a traditional alfredo, but it uses a flour-thickened cheese sauce rather than the traditional method. The Bellavitano that I used to make it is a cheddar-Parmesan hybrid, which gives a nod to traditional alfredo, but at the same time kicks out an unexpected tang and interesting flavor. Want to go full-on? Wash it down with a short glass of good whiskey that’s been sitting in ice for about fifteen minutes.

As you can see, I’m using up the cheese from my Five-Tier Cheese Wheel Wedding Cake. These were fantastic cheeses that deserve mainly to be eaten as they are, but no matter how good I have it, my taste buds are always yearning for something new. Know the feeling?

What you need for 6 servings:

1 large chicken breast
7 oz. of Kentucky Bourbon Bellavitano, grated
1 Tbs of butter
8 oz. baby portabella mushrooms, sliced
1 lb. farfalle
Ingredients for pan frying and sauce making

How to do it:

  1. Defrost chicken in the microwave, or thaw it in the fridge overnight, or use a fresh breast.
  2. Pan-fry the chicken, following this recipe.
  3. When the chicken is done, remove it from the pan. Add butter to the pan, and sauté mushrooms over high heat until browned, about 6 minutes. Set aside.
  4. Cook pasta according to package directions. While that’s going on, get started on the cheese sauce.
  5. Follow this recipe for the cheese sauce, substituting Kentucky Bourbon Bellavitano cheese for both the cheeses, and considering the bacon optional. Check for salt; very surprising, because the Bellavitano is salty, but you’ll probably find that it needs some. Let the cheese sauce rest as you shred the chicken.
  6. Toss everything (including any juices that may have seeped from the chicken as it rested) together in the pot you used for the pasta. Serve immediately on a cheese board shaped like the Enterprise; do not wait for the away team to return from the planet surface.

      • I’m on a 50 g/day carbs diet and I’m craving pasta. Thanks for the post, it was satisfying to know there is still pasta out there. As for dying without carbs, cut me down to 0 carbs and I’m out of here…

  1. Cheese laced with Kentucky bourbon!? Now that’s intriguing! I’ll need to go looking for it. And it looks like it’s on sale in my area.
