Thick, creamy, rich, and delicious alfredo sauce! I had the entire meal for my family on the table in under 30 minutes (I sound like Rachael Ray!) including the pasta and sauce. I couldn't believe the flavor and consistency that came without using flour and starting with a white sauce. Absolutely a winner! Thanks again Kitten!

The flavor was good; however, it is entirely too rich. The recipe does not give direction on how much pasta to use (and it says 4 servings), so I used a 12 oz. box. I suspect if I cut the alfredo recipe in half and combined it with 12 oz. of fettucine, it would be good. I'll try again. Beyond that, nice flavor, very easy to make, and a smooth sauce.
