This is a delicious recipe!! I followed the recipe exactly and served it over spinach fettucine for green worms along with Recipe#74300#74300, Recipe#101677#101677 and halloween cookies for our grandkids Halloween dinner. I made your recipe for Chef Alphabet Tag Game 2009.

After struggling with trying to get Parmesan to melt in the other recipes I had tried, it was a pleasure to find this recipe using asiago cheese. The sauce has just the right consistency and tastes wonderful. My husband loves Chicken Alfredo, and this sauce is definitely a winner. Thanks 1Steve!
