Hearty Fettuccini Alfredo

One of the hardest feats to accomplish in my home is getting my kids full or at least satisfied. “I’m still hungry” is a daily chant coming from someone’s mouth. I think a sandwich, raw veggies, a piece of fruit, and a glass of milk would be sufficient for me or my husband-but not the kids!

Well, I have one meal that is tasty, easy, filling, and quick to prepare (ready in less than 15 minutes)!
