I am especially fond of the item Chicken Spinach Alfredo pasta and I wish to cook it with cow ghee instead of butter. I love the ghee's flavor and for high-temperature cooking like baking, ghee is always a better version. Ghee is lactose-free, which is a double advantage for me as I am lactose allergic. I liked the taste of pasta, you may also try it replacing butter. https://milkio.co.nz/cow-ghee/
