Alfredo Chicken Stromboli

I am the type of person who craves social interactions. I am not good with a lot of down time or  a lot of alone time (although, being a mom has made me greatly enjoy the rare alone moments I get!) Knowing this about myself I signed up for mommy and me classes when Landon was six weeks old. Through those classes I met a great group of women and have had the pleasure of getting together with them regularly. When it was my turn to host at my house I decided to make strombolis for lunch. I made my favorite, roasted vegetable stromboli, and decided to make a new version. I had the idea of making a chicken and broccoli one, but at the last minute I decided to make it even more fattening step it up a notch and add some alfredo sauce. It was a hit! I served it with marinara for dipping but next time I think I'd put out a little bowl of alfredo and a little bowl of marinara. Delish!
