Wonderful twist on the standard alfredo!! I made to go as a side dish to Tomatoes Roasted With Pesto, which made for a fabulous dinner. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT 7.

This was very good, and on the table in no time! I added some lemon juice to the sauce too. Made for the Saucy Silverados and ZWT 9.
