Quite a bit of prep time, but boy is it worth the effort!! I did opt to make the recipie as low fat as possible, substituting in fat-free half & half, ff chicken broth, no butter - used cooking spray. When I did the recount of calories (459) and fat grams (6), I was astonished!! Have made this recipie several times now, and have added yellow squash, zuc's, snow peas during the end of the cream reduction time to give it a little more chewing "bulk". Also, since it takes a while to do the reductions, I don't begin the linguine until I pour in the half & half. If six stars existed, this recipie would rate seven! Thanks for sharing.

A good pasta dish! More like 4 servings in my house. It did take longer to thicken than expected. The kids loved the flaming pan. I will make this again. Thanks for sharing!

Wow! Not wanting to toot my own trumpet or anything, but this was a restaurant quality meal. It was however, incredibly rich and more than adequately served 4 of us. It could have done 6! i just sliced the garlic and used 6 cloves instead of the 4. lovely. Thanks for sharing :)

I halved the sauce ingredients and still had more than enough for 2 people. I made a few modifications--had some salmon to use so substituted that for the chicken and omitted the basil as that doesn't seem to complement salmon well. This was really very tasty!

Ok.. You must be way healthier than I.. LOL. This really was a great 'lighter' pasta dish when compared to most cream sauces. I loved it! I made a couple of modifications to fit taste: I did a 50/50 mix of regular and spinach fettuccine which I thought added both a subtle depth in taste as well as visual appeal. I used lf butter and halfed the total amount. The 2nd reduction took a good while to thicken - about 30 minutes for me. I added a tsp of cornstarch to help it along (I'm impatient!). Thanks for a great recipes! Lots of great flavors.

This was SUPER Delicious! I made it for Valentines day dinner. I made sure that my hubby kept the baby occupied so that I could prep & make it. I used fat free 1/2 and 1/2 and took out the mushroom because I do not like mushrooms. It was VERY GOOD! This reciped makes more than enough for Two. We have leftovers! Thanks for the recipe.

I made this for Valentines Day - my boyfriend LOVED it - I thought it was great too, the flavors were amazing, but I thought the sauce was a bit thin - could be my fault - perhaps I didn't reduce it enough. Took a lot of time, but definitley worth it, and if you are looking to impress - this is a great dish to make!

We all enjoyed this, but thought the flavour was just a bit delicate for our tastes. I would have like tomato paste, a little chilli, pesto, bacon or prosciutto in there too to give it a bit more oomph. I used a citrus vodka, and added the zest of a lemon.
