    I love how you combined the sauces and the cheese for such a creamy overall sauce. This looks really good! I would have never thought to combine alfredo and marinara together, but what a great idea.

    We just tried the Barilla Alfredo sauce for the first time and our girls loved it. They asked that we have it again, will also try this recipe.
