Alfredo Giardino (Garden Alfredo) Serves 4

8 oz fettuccine noodles
1 Tbs olive oil
1 zucchini, quartered lengthwise and sliced
1 yellow squash, quartered lengthwise and sliced
1 red bell pepper, diced
8 oz sliced mushrooms
1 cup frozen green beans (Costco)
1/4 tsp salt
pinch of pepper
1 cup jarred Alfredo sauce (most large stores carry this in the sauce aisle)
grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

While the noodles are boiling, heat a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the oil. Cook the veggies in the oil, stirring frequently, until veggies are tender; about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Toss with 8 oz cooked fettuccine and 1 cup sauce. Top with Parmesan cheese, if desired.

Serve with cooked chicken breasts sliced and put on top, go meatless or add cooked shrimp.
