I have always wanted to try making Alfredo sauce but it seemed more work then I wanted to do. On a whim I decided to check out Alfredo recipes for dinner tonight and found this one. I used Chicken Broccoli Red Peppers & Mushrooms. I also made extra Pasta. My husband & I loved it. My husband told me I out did myself with this meal. This was my first try and I can hardly wait to try it again with other vegetables. Maybe even use shrimp like others have suggested. Great recipe with so many options for personal touches. Read More

I just made this for tonights dinner and it is/was easy to make yummy and no scraps (always a good sign).The only change I made was I used Ro tel Original (Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilis). This was because I did not have any roasted Red Sweet Peppers. As a result I believe my turned out a bit spicier than the original recipe-this is a good thing as we like spicey/hot foods. Either way I plan on keeping this recipe easy to reach and would sugest trying it atleast once. Read More
