Pasta with Garlic Parmesan Sauce

I have absolutely been LOVING using my new spiral vegetable slicer. I have been making lots of simple lunches with it and I really love making zucchini pasta (I’ve made it three times already and have only had the slicer for four days!)  I had some leftover meatballs from last night, and wanted to make something quick and easy for lunch, so I decided that I would make some zucchini pasta and top it with some kind of homemade alfredo sauce.

The sauce that I created was super simple! It took very little time, but is so incredibly tasty! Even my husband, who is not a big alfredo fan, liked it so much that he told me that I needed to share it with y’all.

This is perfect with pasta of any kind. Of course, I used a zucchini pasta that had been lightly sauteed in some fresh butter, but you can use your favorite pasta and it will work just fine!
