Did you know?  Traditional “white” pasta has gotten a bad rap lately but there are plenty of healthier alternatives out there, either with carbs or without!

  1. Alfredo recipes are popular among my family. I am always looking for new recipes to fix and share with my family, as the same recipes are old quickly. I am bookmarking this recipe so may go shop for the ingredients and fix this weekend for the family. When I fix, I post and share the outcome with you! Thanks for sharing. 

    1. I look forward to your feedback!   This is a recipe my daughter has been making for years…and it never gets old!

  2. This alfredo recipe looks great — I will copy it down and try it soon. It’s good to have such an easy recipe to follow. I will look forward to fixing it…oops — no, I won’t copy it but will just print it, as you’ve included a “print” spot on your recipe. Okay, now I have a copy. The only ingredient I need to buy is the light cream. I love recipes that are simple, straightforward, and don’t have a million ingredients. This one looks like a good one.

    1. I enjoy”Cooking Fancy” sometimes but life is busy.  Sometimes it’s nice to have something simple…something you already have the ingredients for.  Enjoy!

  3. Hello, I thought I’d leave my experience of your website. I truly loved going through some of the recipes, got lots of ideas for myself. I cook for two of us, but he doesn’t like everything that I do. Was quite pleased as I went through the archives to find recipes for one person. 


    1. It’s hard to please everyone but I’m happy have found some great recipes for you!  Thank you for your comments!
