This is definitely the best and the easiest alfredo sauce ever! It tastes like it's from a nice restaurant! I was a bit worried on the consistency as I was waiting for the cream to thicken but I just added more cheese and it was perfect! I personally prefer my alfredo to be much thicker thats all. I made this meal for 3 hungry men and they were raving about it. hahah! I know this may seem odd but I did use monterey jack cheese instead of swiss. Not because it was preferred but because i couldn't find it at the grocery store and didn't have time to go looking for it! And it STILL came out fantastic. I would say this is the best alfredo recipe I've used by far!
This was excellent! Nice and spicy and full of flavor. Definitely restaurant quality and real comfort food for seafood lovers. Thanks for sharing.
Really good recipe. I used all shrimp because I don't care for scallops. Delicious meal. I doubled the pepper and it turned out really spicy in a good way.
