There are times where nothing can replace a bowl of creamy, cheesy, garlicky pasta (we have those times seven days a week, 52 weeks a year). Let this Alfredo satisfy and satiate. We built it just for those purposes, making a divine cream and garlic sauce to swirl the pasta in. Served with chicken and garlic bread, this Alfredo will become your comfort pasta go-to before you even finish the first bite.
