Creative Leftovers
Refrigerate any leftovers. To reheat, place in microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 30 sec. or until heated through, adding a small amount of milk to moisten, if desired. Store leftover Alfredo sauce in refrigerator up to 4 days. (Do not freeze.) Heat as directed on package and serve over your favorite hot cooked pasta.
