I've made this a bunch and my family loves it! I love it because it is sooo much healthier than the full fat version--you can feel good about eating it. Love making the adding broccoli to the pasta with this sauce--delicious and one of my daughter's favorite dinners.

I was so hoping this would be great but mine turned out grainy and with only 1 cup of cheese it was too salty and too cheesy... Followed the recipe exactly, good volume not thin just not tasty.
Used to just buy a jar and heat up so wanted more control of the ingredients, salt and fat . Grated cheese just wouldn't "melt" all the way... maybe a different cheese combination.

This is my family's FAVORITE alfredo sauce! My husband rather eat this at home than go to a restaurant and eat a much more fattening version! I double the recipe if I'm feeding more than 4 people and use the leftovers as a homemade pizza sauce for later in the week. SO GOOD!
