  1. I made these tonight with homemade alfredo sauce. They were delicious! Even my crazy picky 8 year old ate it! And she’s the pickiest eater ever!

    1. Homemade alfredo is super easy. Melt 1/2 cup butter with 1.5 cups heavy cream and 2oz cream cheese. Summer and add 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic and italian seasoning each and 1/4 teaspoon of salt & black pepper each. After that just melt 1.5 cups grated parmesan (not the stuff u shake, from a block!) and voila! I like to add onions and chopped parsley too. Careful when reheating but it’s so good usually no left overs.
