I created this recipe for a recipe contest. I didn't win, but I'm still pretty proud of the recipe. It's delicious! Comfort food at it finest. Give it a try, I'm open to suggestions. :-)

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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
