I don’t have time for crazy complicated on weeknights anymore. I mean, I kind of do, but my pregnant-lazy manifests itself in a required rest period after work before I move on to other work and/or cooking dinner, and God help us all if I have an event after work, which I do about 4 nights per week.
So, we have to speed things up. I like meals that I maiiiinnly make, but with some storebought ingredients that I don’t think I could make better, and that I CERTAINLY couldn’t make faster.
So we are using storebought Alfredo sauce. Which is perfect because traditional Alfredo is just butter and garlic and parm, right? And then we jacked it up with cream, and NOTHING wrong with that, but since there really isn’t an agreed upon method for cooking the sauce, storebought stuff is just great. Mine is local and fresh and amazing. It’s from Naked Pasta right here in Greenville. Those dudes make pastas, sauces, and accompaniments to tie everything together. My new fav Farmer’s Market thing is a few sauces and pasta that I can “cook” with fresh veggies and toppings and protein. So that’s what this is! We’re cooking, and using someone else’s sauce.
