Loved it! The only thing I will change next time I make this is to use less Basil. This is just for
our tastes. :)

We really enjoyed this Alfredo a lot! I liked the pepper flakes to give it a little zing! My family complimented the chef, so I wanted to let you know, we all loved it!

I love this! I made this to go with my chicken tonight and the flavors are great. I added a touch more red pepper flakes to suit our taste, a little salt, and used up the little fresh broccoli that I had in the fridge (not a full two cups worth). Otherwise, made as directed. I will certainly make this again! Thanks so much, KathyP53!
