This recipe didn’t come out at all how I had planned for it to. I was expecting a delicate, milky sauce. Something almost chowder-like.
Instead, I took a bite and thought to myself… “I’ve had this before. But what on earth is it?” The taste was so familiar, but I couldn’t place it. I just kept thinking of college. Then it dawned on me – it tasted almost exactly like I remember Knorr/Lipton Alfredo Noodles tasting. You know the kind that come dehydrated in the little paper packet? I practically lived on them in college since they were cheap, easy, and could be made in a microwave. Of course this dish is way less processed and much more nutritious. It’s kind of funny how things like that work out.
