This was my fast food dinner tonight. Thought I would share because it was so awesome and so easy. So creamy and also so healthy. Pasta is a real treat for me- but I will only eat it when the vegetables over-rule the pasta by at least 3 to 1.
I had been thinking about this pasta dish for a while but it finally cooled off enough outside for me to turn my oven on. This was creamy and amazing. And since I'm talking fast food here- I'll keep this short and get straight to the cream-free creamy fettuccine alfredo. Prep time: 10 mins. Cook time, about 8 mins. Dinner in under 20 minutes! That's fast food to me.
