Baked Portobello Mushroom Alfredo comes together quickly for an easy and delicious weeknight meal that everyone will love!
What is it about kids and noodles? Seriously, my kids love them all. Spaghetti and meatballs, mac & cheese, buttered noodles….they’re crazy for them! Which is fine by me….because there’s really nothing easier to make. But. Because they’re so easy to make, I don’t totally love it when they order them at a restaurant.
Don’t get me wrong. I want them to order something they’ll eat. And something they’ll enjoy! And even though I don’t love it, I do let them order whatever they want…within reason. But seriously? Mac & cheese EVERY SINGLE TIME? I can’t even.
The least they could do is order fettuccine alfredo! Something that’s a little less predictable!
Honestly, my kids love fettuccine alfredo. And I love it, too! Of course, I love it even more when I can add some veggies and swap out a few key ingredients to make just a little bit “smarter” (not to mention, more satisfying) dinner option.
I recently made this Baked Portobello Mushroom Alfredo using Horizon Organic dairy products, and it was SO delicious. I replaced some of the noodles with portobello mushrooms for a lower carb, meat free, organic meal….with the veggies mixed right in! And best of all, everyone loved it!
And let’s just say I felt good about it, too. I guess sometimes you just have to beat ’em at their own game, so to speak. Well, kids….game’s on!
