This is a perfect meal for the weeknights when you need something fast but elegant. This recipe uses a prepared Alfredo sauce; however, if you have more time you could make your own. The recipe was printed in Sabrosa a southwest dining guide.

This was very yummy. I ended up adding some chopped tomatoes, green onions and mushrooms in with the green chiles and it came out wonderful, with just enough spice. We didn't have spinach noodles, but I will try to get some for next time. Thanks for posting!
Very yummy! Everyone loved this even my picky 10 year old. Will double it next time so there are leftovers!!
Good recipe that I will make again. I added a jar of marinated artichoke hearts (drained and chopped). Also I served over whole wheat spaghetti. The next time I make this I will double the green chilis and will use a homemade alfredo. This was the first time I had tried jarred alfredo and won't repeat that.
