    My family LOVES LOVES LOVES this dish.  💕 I’m vegetarian so I always get excited when they enjoy a meat dish that I prepared. (As I can not taste it😜) 

    Looking forward in trying other receipts.

    I have all of the ingredients on hand but I only have the round thin italian sausage. Do you think this would work in your recipe? I’m not so sure.

    I just made this dish, my girls have been begging me to make a pasta alfredo. I didn’t change a thing, I added chicken, we are meat lovers. It just finished cooking, my daughter did a taste test and she was jumping up and down, she loves it! The red pepper flakes gives it just the right small after burn that we love. This is perfect, I did make too much pasta, I bagged it up and put it in the refrigerator for another use.

    Well it’s dinner time! Oh, and thanks so much for sharing this wonderful version of an old dish!
