My husband loves crab alfredo, but we simply cannot afford to eat out all the time. This one tastes just as good as what we find at restaurants---and saves us money!

I used the alfredo sauce recipe here, and served with chicken instead of crab... I followed the recipe pretty much as directed, omitting the basil & sliced mushrooms. I used a whole grain linguine instead of fettuccine... The sauce was absolutely delicious -- tastes quite a bit like Marie Calendar's alfredo sauce. I used fat free cream cheese and light cream (what I had in the house), and granulated garlic instead of garlic powder. I will definitely make this again.
