Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

This cream sauce is oh, so delicious. It's perfect over pasta if you need a quick and easy side dish. I served it with roasted chicken and it was great. You can adjust the garlic to your liking, too. Add some shrimp or chicken along with the pasta and it's a meal!
