Some of my favorite meals are meatless. They are a huge money saver, plus they're generally quicker to prepare, making them great weeknight meals. If you've been following me for awhile, you know that I'm a pasta lover, and am always looking to try new pasta recipes. 

I received a care package from a friend recently with some ingredients for easy meals. In the package, there was a jar of alfredo sauce, so I decided to create this recipe. I normally make alfredo homemade, which can't be beat, so I knew I'd want to add some things to the store bought alfredo.

The recipe turned out delicious. The addition of tomatoes, mushrooms and basil jazz up the jarred alfredo sauce. The chicken broth, garlic and crushed red pepper add some great flavor as well. This would also be tasty served over ravioli or tortellini if you don't want to use regular pasta.

Basil is my absolute favorite herb to grow! If you love fresh basil too, give this Garlic and Basil Sesame NoodlesRicotta Crostini with Roasted Tomatoes or this Strawberry Basil Smash a try!
