I came up with this recipe last night. I do have to credit "Colorboyswife" Alfredo Sauce for the wonderful sauce. This would also be easy to make for a crowd. It looks pretty and tastes divine!

Loved this recipe! The only thing that I did different was to use fresh mushrooms. I also used twice the sauce! My husband is not fond of me testing recipes, but even he said the recipe was a keeper!
