This was really yummy, but I felt that it was a little too rich for me, so I'll change it the next time by using 1/2 n 1/2 instead of cream. I decided to grill my chicken instead of sauteing, then sliced thin and added with the cooked pasta. I may also try different cheeses, just for fun, gorgonzola comes to mind at the moment. Overall, very good, and I'll definately make again.

DH said he thought this was a "5". I did use half in half instead of cream and red onion instead of green onion. I all ready had left over cooked chicken so I sauted it in olive with 1 teaspoon minced garlic and the red onion and followed the instructions as directed. I also doubled the red pepper flakes. At the end I just added the pasta to the sauce in my pan. Thanks 2Bleu.

Well at my house Alfredo's are a staple! We all love them and this was awesome! I doubled the recipe for another meal. I know this will taste just as good or better tomorrow. Fantastic comfort food thanks 2Bleu!!
