I doubled this recipe for company and made two 12 oz boxes of fettucine noodles. It was delicious. Next time I will reduce the amount of butter. It had butter floating around the outside of the pot. There was plenty of sauce for that amount of pasta. I did add a little more milk, too. I will make it again!

At last! I love the Olive Garden's alfredo sauce and I've been looking for a good version to make at home. This is it! Thank you very much for posting this. I would suggest using a little bit of pasta water to thin it for those who want it thinner. That way it won't get to "milky." Thanks again!

It was good. I don't think it tasted like Olive Garden but maybe that's because this one I had to make myself. Everything tastes better when someone else sits it down in front of you. :) I like this and would make it again.

I added some garlic and herbs into the butter before adding the cream cheese and milk, and also thinned the sauce down quite a bit (probably closer to 1 1/4 cups of milk). It was delicious though, super fast and easy to put together and tasted more like an authentic alfredo sauce than I expected. Will definitely make again.

A quick and easy meal you can put on the table fast. I added some cooked chicken breast pieces, about 1tsp garlic powder, a dash of basil and some freshly ground pepper at the end. I also added more milk as it reduced down. The sauce for the recipe as is might be a little thick for most but is pretty close to Olive Garden's. My 12 year old step-daughter said it was the best meal she'd ever eaten.

This is a simple recipe and we have it frequently. I double Parmesan and milk to get a little more out of it, but the original recipe is great.

Eh. This was okay. As everyone else said, the sauce is way too thick. Less cream cheese and more milk. I like the idea of using cream cheese in a cream sauce, but the texture ended up weird. Maybe a different kind of cream cheese would be better?
