Made with cream, butter and Parmesan cheese, alfredo sauce is one of our favourite decadent pasta sauces. There are now some good bottled versions available in supermarkets. Add chopped ham steak and a few handfuls of frozen peas and you’ve got a speedy, comforting and satisfying weeknight dinner.
To make Parmesan curls or shavings, use a vegetable peeler and thinly slice curls from block of cheese. Scatter over hot pasta, cold pasta salads or leafy green salads.
