Butternut Squash Alfredo

So last night I made this amazing pasta with leftover Fettichini Alfredo. It was way too late to blog about it, but now that I have had some coffee in me, I think I am up for a quick blog post. I had a butternut squash on the counter that I barely remember buying, so…

Shrimp Fettuccine Sorrentini

Good evening, foodie friends! Hope you had a great weekend and did something grand! The other day, my husband requested a pasta he had at a local Italian place.
