“Taken from "Micro Ways" cookbook written by my good friend Norene Gilletz at Gourmaia.com --- there's enough sauce to combine with 1 pound of noodles, if you are doubling this recipe make it separately not in the same pyrex cup --- follow microwave times and you will have a perfect alfredo sauce, the Parmesan cheese may be increase to taste -- this will separate if heated the following day so I suggest to use it all at one time.”
