Roasted Garlic Alfredo Fettuccine

For my love for Italian food, I keep on trying to learn new recipes and perfect them time to time. Alfredo sauce is one thing that I always stayed away from when ordering food in Italian restaurants thinking it will be too creamy and cannot eat it. All this changed after one day a friend came home and he made the sauce in front of me. It tasted great, would be wrong if I said not creamy, it was creamy but not as much as I had imagined it to be. Then onwards I always make the sauce at home. I added a tweak to the sauce by adding garlic to it after tasting it in Olive Garden resturant and all of us love the taste of this garlic flavored creamy sauce.
