Any suggestions on a good jar of Alfredo sauce? I've tried so many and they're all lacking.

I have made this for years but instead I use Canadian bacon & light alfredo sauce. cook the spaghetti & then combine the rest of the ingredients. Heat through & serve. Very tasty & lower in fat.

This sounds quick and easy, and belive me, I need some time for me! I am going to make it tonight. Yum Yum!

Sounds yummy. But I would drain the bacon grease first and discard. I'd also add some fresh tomatoes in it.

I just looked in my recipe box and the recipe did not completely come up for me I tried a couple times
