Alfredo is an Italian sauce made several ways. In its simplest incarnation, hot cooked pasta is tossed with cream, butter, and cheese until a sauce forms and coats the pasta. Alfredo Sauce is a velvety white sauce sometimes made with cheese and garlic. The sauce is rich and delicious, and easy to make. These recipes all use Alfredo sauce in different ways: from a pot pie to the classic Fettuccine Alfredo.
You can buy Alfredo sauce in jars or in smaller containers in the refrigerated section of... the supermarket. Or you can make your own; an Alfredo sauce is simply a white sauce. Whatever version you choose, you will love all of these recipes.

This fabulous recipe is like pasta on steroids. Lots of smoky bacon and creamy sauce envelops pasta along with cheese and vegetables. The whole thing is baked in the oven and cut into squares to serve. You'll love it as much as I do!

This delicious and super easy one dish meal is made with Pierogies, those big potato stuffed half moon pastas that can be found in the frozen foods aisle of your supermarket. Two kinds of sauces envelop the pierogies so they stay tender as they thaw and cook in the casserole.

Those big beautiful pierogies are wonderful enveloped in a creamy cheese sauce that starts with Alfredo sauce in this easy recipe. I like to add peas, but you can add broccoli or asparagus instead to this fabulous recipe.

Adding meatballs to mac and cheese turns what could be an ordinary dish into something really special. Serve this one to your "meat and potatoes" lovers and watch them melt.

Well, this recipe is not exactly classic. I add garlic, a bit of cornstarch and some lemon juice so the cheese melts smoothly. Please, use real freshly grated Parmesan for this recipe; not the stuff from the green can, or you'll have a clumpy mess! Make just as directed for a fabulous treat.
