Pasta Alfredo ~ Real Food Dollar MenuBy Laura · Dec,05 2012
One of my family’s favorite meals is Pasta Alfredo. It is easy to make, and tastes even better than when you order alfredo at a restaurant! And of course, when you’re making this at home, you can use real food ingredients, making this dish super healthy. :)
Isn’t it nice to know that while you’ll pay around $8.00 per plate for a nice meal of Pasta Alfredo at a restaurant – when you make it homemade, it will cost you (drum roll please)…
…$0.99 per plate. Seriously. And that’s including whole wheat pasta and steamed veggies. Yes indeed!
(My calculations* told me that our steamed veggies cost us $1.65 and the pasta with alfredo sauce broke down to about $5.30. This meal fed seven people.)
You’ll find my Pasta Alfredo recipe here. Feel free to add leftover cooked chicken to this if you have some!
*I calculated my cost based on the food sources and prices I have available to me. Most of the ingredients I use are organic. Your cost may be slightly more or less depending on where you find your ingredients.

How much do you love Alfredo Sauce? My boys, who have birthdays “coming up”, are already telling me that they will be requesting this for their birthday dinner. (It’s never too early to plan for your birthday which is three months away, you know…)
