Mushroom Spinach Alfredo

Alfredo is one of my favorite comfort pasta dishes. The rich creaminess is just irresistible. My family loves it too, especially my son. I always try and put vegetables in it though so it at least seems like we’re eating a  bit healthier. In this recipe I added fresh spinach, mushrooms and lots of garlic.

I also used a new product, Progresso Recipe Starters in creamy Parmesan Basil. It’s a very creamy and very flavorful sauce perfect for alfredo, and other recipes too. There’s a quick and easy recipe right on the can, and you can even use your smart phone to scan for more recipes.

I created this vegetarian recipe which is a great healthier and more economical meal you can make for Meatless Monday or any day of the week. If you have to add protein, you could add sauteed or grilled chicken.

i love this cooking sauce, because you get all the delicious slow simmered flavor of  a homemade sauce in minutes, right out of the can. It takes alot of guesswork out of making rich, creamy dishes that many people shy away from because of the possibility of lumpy or separated sauce.

There’s 5 new Progresso Recipe Starters Cooking Sauce in total. Keep checking back over the next few 2 weeks and you’ll find even more Meatless recipes for all the new flavors.

    I had no idea that Progresso started making these sauces, great idea! And this sounds right up my alley – we’ve been on a huge mushroom kick lately!

    I’ve never seen these sauces! I love the taste of alfredo…I don’t treat myself to it to often because I could do some serious damage to something like this. Spinach and mushrooms are perfect for any pasta alfredo!! YUM
