Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Alfredo sauce is always great, but with the addition of bacon and the spices this kicked it up a few notches. The addition of veggies make this a wonderful meal. A great recipe for a potluck dinner or to serve on a cool fall/winter evening.

cream cheese
3 Tbsp
sour cream
9 oz
whipping cream
