Family Friendly Recipes

I have some recipes that my family really enjoys, but I sure get tired of repeating the same things over and over again. I've wandered through the internet and haven't had much luck.  Have you seen some of the recipes out there that supposedly family friendly?  My kids wouldn't touch it, and I don't have time to make it.  Sometimes I have never even heard of some of the ingredients!  I want some family tried and true recipes that I know people, and kids, really love.

I thought it would be fun to have a Recipe Exchange through some Linky Love.  I'll share one of our family favorites, then you can add your link to a favorite recipe you would like to share with us.

Fetticcini Alfredo
Trust me, if it wasn't easy, I wouldn't be making it!
3/4 cup heavy cream
6 Tbs. butter
2 cloves garlic(I cheat and use prepared minced from the produce section)
1 1/2 cup parmesian cheese(Get the 5 oz container in the cheese section)
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 cup cooked cubed chicken
 Box of fetticcini

Start cooking the pasta, as the fetticcini takes longer.

Mix all ingredients in a saucepan, bring a boil to melt cheese and butter, turn down to simmer until pasta is cooked.  Be sure not to leave on too long, as the cheese will burn if it settles.  Don't add the chicken, as the cheese gets all stuck to it (Ask me how I know!)

I then drain the pasta and serve it up on plates.  I then add the cut chicken and drizzle the sauce over the top.

Easy and yummy!!

Your up your favorite recipes.  You can even add more than one if you want!!
