Sunday Supper - Pasta Bar!

Hi Everyone!
This weekend, I was lucky enough to have all of my husband's cousins and their wives over for a night of food, games and fun!  I decided to throw a "real" party and set up a spread!  It was sure fun.  We did a Wine and Cheese Party and have pasta bar as the dinner.  This is my favorite, because I love my warming trays.  I wish I could explain love like this...I mean LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!  I have two that look kind of like this IMAGE OF Professional Buffet Server/ Warming Tray
I use them all the time and they are perfect for pasta bar.  I make two sauces, white and red ( spicy red bell pepper) that way people can make pink if they wish.  I make two noodles, penne and spaghetti and then ravioli.  Then people can mix and match what they want for food. 
It is so much easier than a sit down and people can really eat!!!!
Ok...so here is my recipe for alfredo sauce...it was marketed as"better than Olive Garden" that is a big promise.  It is delish!
