Introduction: Alfredo Pasta

This is a really simple recipe that can be made quickly yet still has tons of flavor. Homemade Alfredo pasta sauce is really easy to make and is way better than store-bought pasta sauce. It can be used with any pasta you'd like. In this recipe I used spaghetti which is not very traditional but is what I had in my pantry. A great pasta to use would be fettuccini. Regardless of what pasta type you use it'll taste great.
