Creamy, Cream Free Salmon Alfredo

July 7, 2017OffTheWheatenPathTT

If there is one thing that I love, it’s a good bowl of Alfredo pasta. I love it with fettuccini, linguini, spaghetti, it doesn’t matter what kind, there’s just something about the mixture of cream and pasta with a little chicken or shrimp that screams comfort and calls my name.

However, since being diagnosed with allergies and candida, and following a candida diet, Alfredo has been a no no because of all the cream and diary. But I am not ready to give it up! So I decided it was time to find a way that I could enjoy my bowl of creamy pasta without all the allergies.

This is my version of Creamy, Cream Free Alfredo with Salmon & Dill. I substituted the regular cream with oat cream, made a few other changes and voila: Dairy Free, Candida Friendly, healthy Alfredo.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
