Not As Guilty Alfredo

This not as guilty alfredo has lots of cheesy flavor with just enough creamy feel on your tongue without making you feel weighed down after eating it. If you use whole wheat pasta, zucchini ribbons or butternut squash, you will boost the healthy factor even more. It is very easy to put together in only the time it takes for the pasta to cook.
