Pasta Alfredo Bake
I usually like to lead or co-lead (so I don’t get ALL the blame! teehee) but sometimes it pays to be a follower. These last couple days I’ve heard rave after rave from fellow foodie friends about “Amber’s Alfredo Bake”. Its actually been in my blog queue for a while now but just haven’t had the chance to make it. Usually Wednesdays are “dinner for 1” nights since my hubs has work and then his Master’s class (there’s a big gap between but rather than waste gas he just stays at work and goes straight to his class), but this Wednesday he came home and surprised me! I love surprises! So I decided tonight would be a good night to make this new foodie favorite.
