Vegetable Alfredo with Organic Pasta

We love Alfredo so much that we decided to revamp the reputation of this calorie-dense cream sauce. We added asparagus, snap peas, arugula, peas and artichokes to create a veggie-loaded pasta dish, so that you get the best of both worlds—rich, silky Alfredo sauce with plenty of health benefits.
