Pork Parmesan & Pasta Alfredo

The last four days have been so busy.  It was a relief to get back to norm and back in the kitchen.  We rarely eat out but we had business in other towns and it was unavoidable. There were healthy options available so there was absolutely no excuse to venture to into the lands of fast food.
