This Alfredo type pasta dish is fairly quick to get to the table after work, but tastes like a rich restaurant meal.

WOW! Very good Alfredo sauce! I had to add garlic of course! I used leftover Easter Honey and Praline Ham and used Portabella mushrooms. I did have a hard time finding Spinach noodles here but eventually did, worth the search!
