A simple pasta sauce using a few common ingredients, this is kind of like an Alfredo, but not nearly as rich. It's very light and flavorful and pretty low in fat, depending on what kind of milk you use. I made this up because I didn't have any butter for my kids' noodles, and dry noodles just won't do!

The flavor was ok but it was just too watery as written. If you LOVE black pepper you will like this as it is very predominant (not bad just strong). Read More
