    Jeff Cheffro White's Note:

    This recipe uses an authentic, homemade alfredo cream sauce as a base, so if stying light is the goal...this won't fit your flightplan. It uses real butter and heavy cream and other ingredients to make a dish of goodness you've only had in top restaurants. The good news is, it's quick and easy enough for a novice to make with good results. Enjoy!
