      This recipe rocks my world. I have tried several low fat fettucine recipes that all leave something to be desired. I made this using 1/2 cup 1% milk and 1/2 cup fat free half and half (trader joe's.) I didnt have garlic cloves at home so I used garlic powder. I upped the butter just a smidgen. It was really really good and I'll definitely be making this again and again. I served it over spinach fetuccine (fresh made) and it was better than any restuarant version (less guilt too!) Thanks so much!

      Update Nov 08 - I make this recipe quite often now so have attached a photo. I double the sauce and add seafood because we love it so much. Mar 13/08 --What a fabulous recipe this is! I can't believe I am the first to rate it. Alfredo is one of my favourite dishes and to be able to eat it without guilt is wonderful. (I looked at a lot of other recipes on Zaar but the fat content of some recipes is shocking.) I used 1/2 C of 2% milk and 1/2 C of half and half cream as I did not have the "whole milk" on hand. I also used only 3/4 C of parmesan as that was all I had left. This totally rocks! All four of us give it 5* (or more if we could) Thx so much Chef V!

      Thankyou so much for this recipe! I can't begin to tell you what a reduced guilt Alfredo means as a treat to us! :) I added slightly undercooked shrimp and cooked chicken breast to the sauce at the end. What a great baseline recipe, I won't be looking for another! Also try my fave variation, melt some blue cheese into the sauce as written, then add steamed asparagus cut in 1 inch pieces, and some cubed toupie ham for the last minute. Delish!

      This recipe was fantastic and will go into the "keeper" file! My daughter asked for fettuccine alfredo for dinner and I cringed as the tried and true recipe in my files is loaded with bad stuff. I remembered saving this one to my list of things to try so I pulled it out and gave it a whirl. I didn't have any heavy cream or half and half on hand, so rather than running to the store I upped the butter/flour roux amounts just a bit and used all 2% milk. I also added a bit of parsley just because I like the color it adds. Great recipe, will use it again!

      I am not a fan of fettucine alfredo, its too rich, my family does though. This was the perfect compromise, we all loved it. I sauteed some broccoli, onions, asparagus , and peppers and added it as well as some cooked chicken. Fast easy delicious meal. Thanks!

      I made this last night for some friends. I made a few slight changes though and it was a HIT!
      I used a 1/2 cup of 2% milk and 1/2 cup of fat free half and half. I also added a bit of low fat cream cheese to thicken it up just a little since my rue wasn't really working. Cheating? Yes.

      The main thing was that it was delicious! We also baked chicken breast in some OJ, lemon juice and olive oils. Peppered it up and added a hint of salt.

      All in all it was a delicious meal that took 2 minutes to make (except of course baking the chicken) and cost less than $30 for four of us. Budget conscious AND healthy! Great combo! Will be making again.

      My son is a picky eater and loves this - I add a bit more butter and flour to make the roue and add chicken. Going to add broccoli tonight!
