Creamy and cheesy pastas might possibly be our Achille’s Heel; we’re addicted. And this delicious spinach fettuccine alfredo is our downfall. What makes us feel better about this situation is that it’s a one-and-done mealthe pasta and sauce cook in the same pot and it makes clean-up the easiest thing ever! Perfection in a pasta and no wrinkly hands from doing tons of dishes is our idea of a win-win. For all that is good, (please) run to your kitchen and make this yummy pasta!
