Very impressive! I used the exact ingredients listed and added some garlic powder. It smells and tastes like the real, loaded with fat thing! The only problem is that my sauce didn't thicken at all. So, I added 2 tbsp of cornstarch to 2 tbsp of milk and stirred it into the sauce. It thickened up very nicely. Thanx for sharing this recipe. I'm going to use this recipe (with the added cornstarch) from now on.

Had this recipe years ago, was just talking about it to husband. Haven't made it for years, glad to find it again. We always loved it. Surprised some reviewers disliked it so much, but happens with every recipe, to each his own. It can be a little thin, but I remember that I would put it on the pasta (I liked it on small shells) and stir it up, then let the pasta sit for a few minutes. The starch would thicken it up. We also used to put a clove or two of garlic and red pepper flakes in the blender and puree it all up. Made it garlicky and spicy. Very nice. Also good if you dice up some roasted red pepper and toss it with the sauce & pasta.

This turned out nicely. I made it with no-fat cottage cheese and 1% milk. I had Romano cheese, so I used that instead of Parmesan. I was going super low-fat with this, and made it with spaghetti squash and shrimp, and it came out great. I thickened the sauce a little bit with a dash of cornstarch, because I found it a little runny in its natural state. I will use this again when I'm craving alfredo.

This turned out great. DH was very impressed with how tasty it was. I tossed with penne pasta and sauted mushrooms, garlic & spinach. Yummy! Thanks for posting.

Made this last night and followed exactly, blending the ingredients in the blender. My sauce came out creamy and smooth. I did use the cornstarch to thicken and it was perfect. I added some sauteed shrimp. Very delicious for being fairly low fat, and quick to make. This is a keeper.

I tried straining the cottage cheese before blending, but the sauce still turned out more of a soup texture rather than sauce. I will try pressed cottage cheese next time. Sauce has a great flavour, thanks for posting.

Oh my goodness, was this tasty. I can't believe how similar it tasted like the real thing! I would have never thought to use cottage cheese as a base instead of of whipping cream. Thank you so much for this wonderful side dish!!!

This was a great lowfat recipe, only thing is i didn't use all the butter and so it was a bit bland needed some salt. Will follow directions exactly next time. Thanks! :)
