    Bill Hilbrich's Note:

    This is a very easy solo recipe that can be made in a college style microwave. My old microwave required three 2 minute cycles for the pasta. Cooked chicken or shrimp could be added. Cooking is a creative sport. I must caution you that using a finely grated parmesan cheese, like that found in cans of Kraft or Crystal Farms is important because larger pieces of cheese will not melt properly in the residual heat from the melted cream cheese. This recipe is one of my favorites, and represents one of my more productive efforts to encourage young people to cook. One of my co-workers was eating from a carry out container, She told me that once a month she and her friends went out to dinner at a nice Italian Restaurant ... clearly something that they could not afford very often .. and she had saved some of the Fettuccine Alfredo from the night before. When I suggested that she could make that at home, she looked at me with her big sad brown eyes and said that all she had in her apartment was a microwave. So, I wrote this recipe just for her.

      very good. i did find that i had to add a bit more milk as the sauce dried out quickly but this is great if you've run out of ready made pasta sauce as it calls for few ingredients and tastes great.
