      I only had three ingredients for this recipe and was tired and starving, so I gave it the old collegiate try! It turned out wonderfully! Once my mini bow ties were cooked, I dumped them out of the pan, and threw in the butter and cream. Returned the pasta to the pan and threw in the cheese and stirred until it all came together. Truly delicious! JamiLeigh, thank you not only for the recipe, but the concept of making a single serving of Alfredo. This was something I had not really thought about before now!
