FOOD, My recipes, Uncategorized HOMECOOKED SEAFOOD ALFREDO PASTA, STRAWBERRIES & YOGHURT 26 September 2006

Cooked again tonight.. a Seafood Alfredo Pasta that took just a few minutes to toss together (I short-cut on the ingredients). Easy peasy! And fantastic for a carb-monster like myself. Very, very satisfying :)~ Dessert was Fresh Strawberries & Honey Yoghurt, mmmmmmmm…

Not a very healthy meal (thanks to the, albeit ‘light’, butter and cream cheese).. but I’d been a bad girl and pigged out on Domino’s pizza for lunch, so I figured I’ll just go the whole hog and be bad for the day 😉


Seafood Alfredo Pasta, served with a fresh garden salad (not pictured)

    What’s light milk? Milk with reduced fat?

    The yogurt and strawberries look extremely appealing, usually I’m not a big fan of yogurt.

      The yoghurt was YUM. It was “honey buzz” and like smooth ice cream

    That honey yogurt sounds yummy!!! Is it sold like that or did you make your own? I wonder if it would be the same as mixing honey into plain yogurt?

      It came like that, it’s “honey buzz” flavour apparently. I think it’s the same as just drizzling some honey on top and mixing it in 🙂
