I called this pasta Eat Pray Love Pasta because I got the inspiration for it from a preview for the movie Eat, Pray, Love. When I saw Julia Roberts gobbling up this dish, I didn’t know exactly what it was but I tried my best to recreate it from what I saw. I ended up just using a fresh pasta dough recipe and then making an alfredo sauce, substituting the Parmesan with Cheddar. I realize that’s sacrilege in the world of Alfredo sauce but, that’s why I didn’t call it an alfredo recipe.
I did end up seeing the movie and to be honest, it wasn’t all that great. Although I did thoroughly enjoy the Eating part of it! This recipe though, whether it tastes anything like what Julia Roberts ate in Italy or not, is very very good and will be one that I make again and again.
