“I had a cookbook that had Top Secret Olive Garden Alfredo Pasta, an amazing recipe, but it needed heavy cream, and we never seemed to have it around. Without the cream the sauce was too thin and didn't stick to the pasta. I tried making the recipe with butter and flour and it was delicious! If you have leftovers and you store it in the fridge, the suace will harden (because there is so much cheese), don't worry just microwave it for a bit and it will be good as new!”
