Author Notes: When you can't decide between a roasted garlic/roma tomato sauce or an alfredo for your favorite pasta tonight...don't decide!! ...have both!!!
This recipe is based on a Knorr brand powdered mix that I discovered around 1990(thanks Monique!).
Note that I've mixed in some steamed green beans in the photo.
