Last night I made one of our favorite dishes, chicken alfredo. It was yummy! Many people eat pasta at least once a week I did some research and found out the average American consumes 4 1/2 - 5 pounds of pasta per year. That doesn't sound like a lot but when you consider how light uncooked pasta is it makes more sense. If you are like me, you are always willing to try a new recipe with pasta. With so many options, it can be a little frustrating and overwhelming putting the correct ingredients with this staple. I found the following information on http://www.ilovepasta.org and it breaks down the right combination of pasta, sauces and meats. I plan on printing it out and keeping it with my recipes. I hope you find it as useful as I did.
