Chicken & Cheese Tortellini Alfredo Recipe
I first taste the wonderful combination of Alfredo sauce and pesto at a restaurant, and that inspired me to add all kinds of different flavors to Alfredo sauce. The basil pesto is still my favorite and I've used that combination in this amazing dinner. Let your company be impressed and don't tell them how easy it was to make.Kelly Williams, Forked River, New Jersey
