    Sharon123's Note:

    Cat Cora makes these to serve with her Kota Kapama(Chicken Stewed in Wine, Garlic and Cinnamon). This would also make a simple dinner paired witha big green salad. From Cat Cora's Kitchen cookbook.

      A nice and simple pasta dish -- could be used as a side or main dish. Thank you so much for sharing!

      Mmmmm! THE Friday night supper of my childhood ~ a great mac and cheese! True comfort food! I went a little lighter on the salt and added a few extra grinds of pepper. Thanks for sharing Sharon. Made for Zwizzle Chicks for ZWT6.

      This is a very pleasant dish. It's reminiscent of the original Alfredo sauce, which was only butter and cheese. Made for ZWT 6.
