I don’t know about you, but I love alfredo. Something about cheese meets cream meets noodle that I just can’t resist. I try to save it for special meals because, well, it’s cream meets cheese meets noodle. While my taste buds revel in the culinary delight, but thighs don’t carry the same love for the delightful delicacy.
So in order to provide myself a sufficient enough reason to indulge in a helping of the noodley goodness, I decided to go all out for Sunday dinner this past weekend. I made a tarragon lemon roast chicken (recipe to come in the near future), homemade whole wheat rolls (recipe to also come in the near future), fresh asparagus, and some homemade spinach noodles to accompany my alfredo sauce. And holy moly, my dogs were barking, my back was squawking, and my children were under appreciated, but my dinner was amazing and I relished every. single. bite.
So I’m guessing that you’re interested to know how you can achieve the same bliss in your house. Believe it or not, it’s not that difficult at all. My version of alfredo is pretty quick and painless (so long as you leave the chicken, homemade noodles, and from scratch rolls out of the mix). Here’s what you’ll need to create noodle magic:

Julie these look fantastic. I've cooked under the same back-aching, dog barking, kids screaming conditions many times but they sure eat well, eh? My husband is crazy for any kind of white sauce and I'm sure he'd love these. Thank you for the inspiration 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! I'm glad you were inspired.
Looks like you got your blog figured out (saw your question over at SITS). I love alfredo too. Who doesn't?
Thanks so much Alicia for checking it out. Yes, i did finally get it figured out. I hit something on my keyboard and everything shrank to nothing and then I messed up my template trying to fix it! Such a messy way to start the day, but all is well that ends well. I appreciate your help!
MMM Alfredo, you have sparked a craving! I , too, am a stay at home mom with children. Love your photos!
I really want your recipe for the noodles!
Thanks Red! I really enjoy photography, although I'm definitely no professional.
Lexi, I'd be happy to give you the recipe for the noodles. It's actually only three ingredients. Do you have a pasta maker?
I had to show this unique blog, “Alfredo with a side of
Dinner | Mommie Cooks!” together with my personal good friends on facebook.
I personallybasically needed to distribute your superb publishing!
Thanks a lot, Cecile
