ALFREDO & ROASTED GARLIC PASTA

Alfredo and Roasted Garlic Pasta

My siblings and I whipped this up for dinner today. We put together all of our raw leftover pasta (macaroni, linguine and fettuccine) and decided to create a pasta masterpiece (or so my brother says). Throw in some chopped mushrooms and roasted garlic and serve with some freshly toasted garlic bread. This pasta will sure give you a good night’s sleep!
