Alfredo Cauliflower

Have you tried Alfredo Sauce on cauliflower?  If you haven't, you really need to do so.   It is wonderful! The sauce is easily made while the cauliflower cooks.   Broken apart in pieces, or mashed, this could easily be a new comfort dish!

Alfredo Spaghetti Squash

Do you like spaghetti squash?  I have cooked it several times and ways, yet my boys would not eat it. ( They are getting so picky lately, something I definitely need to work on.)  I have tried salt and pepper, butter and parmesan, spaghetti sauce..nope, nothing from my twins.  This time, I decided to go with alfredo sauce.  Good news, my oldest loved it!  He pretty much likes any white sauce and white pizza, just like his Mom.  The twins, well, they were being pretty negative about trying a new dish.  I'll keep making it, next time..I'll start, making it simple with  a little salt, pepper, butter and parmesan.  Sooner or later they should like it, right?!

Fluffy Crust Whole Wheat Alfredo Pizza

Friday night is pizza night for us.  We love it!  It is a time when we are all in the kitchen, making our favorites or creating new ones.  My oldest son wanted a white pizza.  We came up with a yummy Alfredo one!  It has a thick and fluffy, crust that has a hint of garlic and parmesan cheese.  Next time I'll cook it on a baking sheet and cut into squares.    Feel free to add any and everything you wish.  It will be amazing!  I adapted this recipe from the back of a package of Fleischmann's Pizza Crust Yeast.  I love it!

Fluffy Crust Whole Wheat Alfredo Pizza

What you need
2 cups King Arthur Premium Whole Wheat Flour, more if needed
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoon ground garlic
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 packet Fleischmann's Pizza Crust Yeast
2/3 cup very warm water, 120 - 130 degree F
1/4 to 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
3 Tablespoons oil
1/2 cup Alfredo Sauce or Spread, homemade or bought. Use more or less, you decide.
1/2 to 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, homemade or bought
your favorite toppings, optional

What to do
Grease pizza pan or baking sheet with sides.
Put 1 cup whole wheat flour, sugar, garlic, parsley and yeast in a large bowl. Whisk together. 
Stir in very warm water and oil.
Stir in parmesan.
Add more flour, a little at the time, until a soft dough is formed.  
I kneaded dough with a fork sticky and adding the flour.  
Stir, knead with fork, add more flour, stir, knead with get the idea. 
After dough is soft, turn out on floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic adding a little dog at the time if needed.
I kneaded the dough with my hand in the bowl.  
Stretch and pat dough to fill pizza pan or baking sheet.
Top with Alfredo Sauce or Spread.  
Top with mozzarella cheese and any additional toppings you like.
Let pizza sit for 20 minutes.  
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F the last 10 minutes, more or less, of resting.  You know how long it takes your oven to preheat. 
Bake on bottom rack for 8 minutes, check and turn around cooking another 4 to 7 minutes if needed.  Crust will be very soft and fluffy.

Alfredo Green Bean Casserole

A spin on my Mama's, and probably yours too, green bean casserole.  The one with mushroom soup, french style green beans and fried onions.  I loved my Mama's green bean casserole and looked forward to eating it.  However, my boys like alfredo better, so....I made it with alfredo sauce and it was  HIT!    Try it for something different.  I bet your family will like it too.  <3 and hugs!

Alfredo Spread and Sauce

I was looking at the newsfeed on facebook the other day and came across a recipe that Lark, of shared for her Delicious Alfredo Sauce! Oh My Stars! It looked so good! There was our supper staring at me. Using her wonderful recipe, I started cooking, changing it a little along the way.   I ended up making an Alfredo Spread as well as sauce.  I hope you like these as much as my boys and hubby did <3 and hUgs !

Alfredo Spread 

 1/2 cup margarine 
 6 oz neufchatel 
 1 1/4 cups grated parmesan cheese 
3-6 teaspoons minced garlic, I use bottled in water 
 1/2 cup milk or heavy cream, I used milk and it was great 
 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, if desired 


Melt margarine and cream cheese over medium heat. 

Add parmesan cheese, a little at the time. 

As the cheese mixture thickens, add milk, a little at the time. 

Once the cheese has melted take off heat. 
 This will make 1 1/2 cups spread. 

Alfredo Sauce

Make as above but add more milk, or heavy cream, a little at the time, to make it the consistency you like.
Serve over fettuccine that has been cooked as directed on the label.
We usually toss the pasta and sauce together and serve it family style.
