From the kitchen of Stephanie Knewasser.  My friend Ben
made this and I thought it was incredible, but had no idea it
was alfredo because it is so different from my recipe. Pesto,
spinach, tomatoes and grilled chicken make this a stand out
dish.
In a large pan:
4 Tbsp butter
1-2 small cloves garlic, chopped
Sauté the garlic.
Add:
2 c half -n- half
When warm add:
4 oz cream cheese
When incorporated, add:
1 c Parmesan or Romano
When thickened, add:
1 c basil pesto

In a large pot, cook:
1 lb pasta

In a different pan:
a drizzle of olive oil
fresh spinach, coarsely chopped
Sauté until spinach is wilted.
Set aside.

On a cookie sheet:
cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
drizzle of olive oil
season with salt
Roast in oven @ 400, until charred.

In a large bowl toss:
spinach
tomatoes
pasta

Top with:
shredded parmesan
slices of grilled chicken
"Some things are better left unsaid. Which I generally realize right after I have said them."
