Be inspired by ♥ Parmesan Meatballs With Saffron Pasta And Alfredo Sauce

The Secret Recipe Club is a monthly challenge that I really love participating in! I have been taking part since August 2011 and each month I am get to meet a new blogger! This month I got to visit with SteakNPotatoesKindaGurl – Desi is a psych major (I am too) and has just listed her 30×30 – 30 recipes she wants to make before she turns 30. I was hoping that one of these would have been done my the time I made my choice, but she has not yet started tackling her wishes. So instead, after much looking, I chose to make her Parmesan Meatballs With Fettuccine And Alfredo Sauce as I love pasta! Desi has adapted most of her recipes, showcasing other bloggers and I hope my showcase of her adaptation is just as good.
