      I was quite surprised that it was so creamy and tastey considering there is NO cream or butter! My husband loved it and it is a great alternative to the artery killing original.

      This lowfat alfredo is fantastic, considering its low in fat! I only made one addition, and that was some garlic paste :-) I love garlic alfredo, so thats what I made. My sauce was a little too thick so I added just a tad more milk to it. It was so yummy! Definitely serve IMMEDIATELY!! :-) Thanks for the recipe Ginny! My family really enjoyed it!

      This was soooo good. My husband thought this was better than full fat, regular alfredo. I did not use the egg (I'm funny about egg not cooking enough), but I did pour in some liquid margarine (I Cant Believe its Not Butter spray) I also added shrimp, peas and garlic powder. Thanks for a great recipe!
