This is a fairly simple recipe I came across years ago. It is divided into two parts, the pesto and an Alfredo sauce, and then the two are mixed together! Serve over hot pasta. Have fun with the pasta - some of our favorites for this are penne and farfalle (bow tie).
Substituting half-and-half for the milk will make a richer sauce.
For a really exciting flavor, mix several Italian cheeses together! Use equal parts Asiago, Romano, and fresh Parmesan to give it a really zesty kick.
Thin strips of chicken breast, pan-fried in olive oil, are also a nice addition for a main course.
