5 Minute Gourmet Alfredo

As promised on Monday, here is my five minute gourmet recipe for restaurant quality Alfredo.  Earlier this week we had spaghetti chicken parm (thanks hubs), and we had left over noodles.  I'm sure the tub of spaghetti is not an unusual sight.

First, I put one pad of butter on top of the noodles and then added a few roasted tomatoes (optional, but boy does it really kick up the flavor). I pour some heavy whipping cream (half and half is a great alternative) and garlic powder on this, and throw it in the microwave for 90 seconds.  Add some parmesan cheese and stir.  Cut up the tomatoes into bite size pieces and you have an amazing quick lunch.  My kids actually really like this recipe too.  You can mix it up, add garlic, or chicken, or shrimp...or broccoli, get the idea.

Doesn't that look yum? Even in a plastic gladware dish, haha. ;) Who needs food coloring and preservatives? Psh.
