This is a restaurant-quality dish that is rich, creamy and worth every darn calorie! try to use the best Parmesan cheese only for this recipe as it will really make a difference to the taste --- although the amounts stated will make a fair amount of alfredo sauce it may easily be doubled if desired, feel free to add in cooked shrimp or chicken to the alfredo sauce, this is very good!
