"no Fettuccine" Spaghetti Alfredo

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Chef Rye

After years of making alfredo sauce, I think I have perfected what I call the "Best Alfredo Sauce in America"! However, I was fresh out of fettuccine, so I had to substitute spaghetti noodles, but even still, the results were amazing!! I hope you'll try my recipe and enjoy it as much as I have!

I made this for my husband because he doesn't like spag. sauce. I had to make it with what I had on hand. So I used garlic powder, substituted milk for the wine, I doubled the recipe except used 12 ounces cream cheese. I was out of grated parmesan so used the stuff out of a can and also used some shredded italian cheese. I added some chicken and my whole family loved it. I am sure it would have been excellent also if I would have had the right ingredients on hand. What a great recipe!
