“My husband lived in Italy for 3 years, so he's really picky about his Italian cuisine! I needed a great meal that was super-quick one night for his dinner; I had spicy battered shrimp on hand that I wanted to use and a couple choices of dried pasta. This sauce sounded perfect to tie it all together! Served over tortiglioni pasta with salad and toasted Italian bread. Just like I spent all day on dinner. It is really hard to mess-up this kind of white sauce. In my opinion, it was very much like an Alfredo sauce! Of course there is very little difference in the two sauces.”

I used all butter and sauteed a little fresh minced garlic in the butter before adding all the rest of the ingredients. To add a little more flavor, I added a good amount of parmesan cheese and a little red pepper flake to the sauce before tossing it with hot fettucini. Not bad, it tastes a lot like the flavored boxed pasta my Mom made me as a kid. The kids INHALED IT.
