READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Samantha in Ut

I got this recipe from my sister. I serve with a garden salad and garlic bread. It is really rich and creamy. With the pepper and nutmeg I just add a large pinch but I gave actually measurements here to it is to taste.

Loved it!! I made as directed other than adding a little minced garlic and I used spinach fettuccine. Thanks Samanta for a great keeper. Made for ZWT4 Family Picks.
