So here is where the Alfredo part comes in.  Alfredo pasta sauce is an original pasta sauce that you will find at any Italian restaurant on the menu.  It mainly consists of garlic, cream and butter, melted with grated parmesan and added to cooked pasta.  However, you can add your own meat to the sauce that makes this versatile recipe a great meal.

I decided to add shredded chicken and mushrooms with my Alfredo sauce and serve it on cooked penne pasta and garnish with fresh dill.  Why dill? Because it’s the only fresh herb I had! The result was magnificent.
