WEMP Free Alfredo Pasta!!!!
OK, so I was totally disappointed tonight. I made an AWESOME alfredo-style pasta dish for Derek that is really...REALLY good! And he wouldn't eat it. He did finally break down and enjoy a little of it, so I was slightly relieved! I think it turns out that he really just wanted to play with his trains, and wasn't interested in eating anything.
However, both the girls tried it (I made them regular mac and cheese) and they BOTH loved it and asked me to make it for them next time! :) So, I know it was good! LOL!
So, it's definitely a keeper! I'll be making this one weekly, I'm sure! It was simple and quick...and so tasty! You can't even tell it's WEMP Free!!!!!!
