Large casserole macaroni with ham and peas in a creamy, cheesy Alfredo sauce makes a quick and complete weeknight dinner.
Avery, a two-year old in my day care, is the cutest little thing I have ever seen. When her hair is in a ponytail, she looks just like “Boo”, the little girl from Monsters Inc. Up until recently, Avery had been the youngest child in the group, but she inspired all of the older children to use their manners. They applied it more frequently after seeing how she got praised for using hers. Avery often says “thank you” when I change her diaper, when I hand her an item, when I serve her food. In fact, when I fed her soup for lunch last week, she thanked me in her little squeaky voice before taking each bite…all twenty five spoonfuls! How cute is that?
One other person who will be thanking me is my daughter whose craving for Alfredo sauce inspired this post. In this recipe, freshly grated garlic clove provides a slight hint of garlic, and casserole macaroni (large macaroni) is a fun change from the fettuccine that is typically used with this sauce. With added ham and peas, this pasta dish is a complete, easy weeknight dinner.
