Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz
If your alfredo sauce has spices already added to it then it might not be necessary to add in the Italian seasoning. Adjust all amounts to taste. If you like some heat then add in some dryed chili flakes to the red pepper mixure. This is also good using shrimp in place or turkey or chicken. My alfredo Kittencal's Alfredo Sauce works great with this recipe!

- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
