I recently discovered a gluten free cream of chicken soup from Pacific that has been a total life saver. I buy a bunch of them from Thrive Market that way I always have them on hand for casseroles and soups. Growing up one of my favorite meals was chicken Alfredo, while still a delicious choice I tried to take my old favorite and make it a bit healthier. Instead of lots of heavy cream and cheese I cooked that pasta in a combination of water and cream of chicken soup and just topped it was a bit of Parmesan cheese. This provided all the creaminess I had been wanting but way less of the fat. Then I added a touch of pesto because herbs make everything better!
