If I am going to sit down to Italian food, 9 times out of 10 it will contain Alfredo sauce. I can’t get enough of it!
This meal was absolutely wonderful! It combined all the things I love on my favorite pizza into pasta form… making it SO EASY! I whipped this up in literally no time at all and my family all enjoyed it.
