      We absolutely loved this, and so easy to prepare for such a lovely rich dish! I can't find commercial alfredo sauce mix here, so I made my own, and since it was just DH and I, I subbed shrimps for the chicken, cooking them and then taking them out of the pan while I prepared the spinach/sauce/pesto, adding them once I'd tossed everything together. This was a marvellous supper and we felt very spoilt, it smelled incredible too! Thanks for a really good recipe that I will make again, , Elizabeth Theresa! Made for PAC Spring 2009
