This one is "inspired" by The Olive Gardens Alfredo sauce. The first time I really remember going to The Olive Garden was at a girls night out with my in-laws. We had a great time and it was great food. My sister and mother ordered the alfredo sauce on the side to dip their bread sticks in. It was really good! I made up a sauce (with my sisters help) that tastes very similar to me, you can judge for yourself. I don't really like this with noodles it doesn't taste quite right. I am going to make one change and see if I like it better. But, for dipping this is fantastic! I haven't been able to make a bread stick that I really LIKE yet, so until then I will hold off posting a recipe for that. I like to chop up french bread into chunks and dip it into the sauce for a delicious Appetizer. This is great for a cheep stay at home movie night with your husband! I hope you enjoy.
