Linguine Alfredo

Use up leftover noodles by tossing them with this wonderful creamy garlic sauce from Loretta Ruda of Kennesaw, Georgia. "This is my version of several recipes I've tried through the years," she notes. "It is so simple to make." Tip: "Top this dish with broiled shrimp or scallops," she suggests.

    This was delicious. My niece said it tasted just like Olive Garden.

    This tasted fantastic. I double the amounts and used it as a base for clams on top of linguine. I cooked the clams in a special lemon/pepper Phillips marinade then added to the top of the Alfredo sauce. Fantastic blend of flavors.
