Next time, I would add more cream cheese, as the sauce was a little too thin. Otherwise, very good and easy to make. Added grilled chicken strips to the pasta, then slathered on this yummy sauce.

This is very good. I cut the recipe in half. I added fresh minced garlic to the butter before I added the cream. I also added a pinch of cayenne pepper, crushed red pepper, chili powder, and italian seasoning since I was making a cajun alfredo. I added 1/2 cup of parmesan, asiago, and mozzerella because parmesan is really expensive where I live. It took about 25 minutes as expected, but it was worth it. The boyfriend said it was the best alfredo he had ever had.

I don't normally care for alfredo sauce - sometimes it's very heavy and bland. This one was very flavorful, though. I used light cream cheese (all I buy), and I actually increased the amount to four ounces. I didn't have a full pint of cream, so I topped off what I had with fat-free half-and-half. Mixed this with some Garlic and Herb frozen shrimp that I buy at BJ's, broccoli, carrots, green beans, and served it over fettuccine. When the fancy strikes me, I also add a tsp. of Chipotle chili powder. I'm impressed, and so were all the people I served it to.

Oh Di, this is delicious! I used 1/2 and 1/2 cream, because that's what I had on hand, and fresh grated parmesean. Used 1 tsp of garlic powder, then added a fresh clove (grated).Served on penne pasta and topped with fresh parsley.

This Sauce is very simple to make and a huge hit. BEWARE... it will ruin your Alfredo experiences with store bought, and even many restaurant Alfredo Sauces. However the time to make it is well worth it and a sauce we make even on busy nights. This has become a requested recipe anytime I have made it for someone else.

This is a great alfredo sauce! I used minced garlic instead of garlic powder and it gives so much more flavor! This is definitely a hit in my house!

Great Recipe. Best I've had since Olive Garden. Definite Keeper!
Next time I will use less Parmesan cheese and add more cream cheese.(Personal Preference)

This was really good! I used half & half on accident, added a dash (or 3) of Italian Seasoning and it turned out great!
