This is basically a recipe I found in the Looneyspoons cookbook and altered to suit my tastes! So very yummy! Feel free to add whatever you like - sometimes I add chicken, and sometimes I add shrimp!

    this was very simple to make. my family enjoyed. I didnt have 2% milk or skim milk so I used whole milk. With that exception I followed recipe to a T. VERY DELICIOUS!!

    My kids love fettuccine alfredo, so I tagged this in Spring '08 PAC. I used whole wheat linguine, Smart Bal. margarine, skim milk, shrimp and added some cooked chopped broccoli. It would definitely be stronger tasting with the real Parmesan, so next time I will add 1/2 C grated. Kids gobbled it up.
