    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Taken from "Micro Ways" cookbook written by my good friend Norene Gilletz at --- there's enough sauce to combine with 1 pound of noodles, if you are doubling this recipe make it separately not in the same pyrex cup --- follow microwave times and you will have a perfect alfredo sauce, the Parmesan cheese may be increase to taste -- this will separate if heated the following day so I suggest to use it all at one time.

      My old recipe (which I can't find) did not have garlic or nutmeg, and I love the way this sauce tasted with these additions. I followed the directions and it came out perfectly. My kids ate it as is with tortellini, but I mixed in some of my homemade tomato sauce to my pasta to cut the richness. I highly recommend this sauce!

      Delicious & easy. This is my 7 year old daughter's "signature" dish. She is so proud whenever she makes it. I help get the dish in & out of microwave but otherwise, she does it on her own. Alfredo is her favorite restaurant dish and this is just as good!

      Kittencal, you've done it yet again!! I roasted some fresh asparagus with lemon olive oil and topped angel hair pasta with the sauce and veggies and WOW! Quick, easy and what gourmet taste in minutes! Even though I WANTED to take the credit, I HAD to tell everyone about the 'ZAAR (and Kittencal, too)! LOL!! Thank you, thank you!!!
