Alfredo has finally grown up! Our version uses bucatini – a thick, spaghetti-like pasta that's actually a tube. We add tangy goat cheese, roasted red peppers, sweet peas, and finish with a flourish of pine nuts. It's every bit as creamy as the traditional version, and with a side of toasted garlic bread, you've got a plate of comfort food perfect for cozying up with your loved ones.
