Made this last night and my kids and husband could not get enough. I added two extra tablespoons of the cream cheese for thickness and it was DELICIOUS! I will never buy Alfredo again and who needs Olive Garden! LOL.
Delish! I made this recipe tonight using low-fat cream cheese, but otherwise following all directions. I was concerned that the cream cheese and butter remained "separate" instead of blending together smoothly like I thought they would in Step 2. But, when I added the cream and the sauce cooked, they all blended beautifully. This is a terrific recipe that we'll definitely use again! I added finely chopped broccoli so my youngsters couldn't pick it out. Worked like a charm! Update: I made tonight without cream cheese and didn't notice a difference. One less ingredient to buy at the grocery store! :)
My husband is a major alfredo lover, I made this for his bday and he ranted and raved that this was the BEST alfredo he has ever had. I agree 100%! I pretty much followed the recipe only I added a little mozzarella, Cajun seasoning, shrimp scampi then served over linguini pasta. This is now a household fav!! Thanks for the recipe.
Very,very good! I had been using the recipe from Everyday Italian and it was just too lemony with no garlic at all, my family did not really care for it. This they absolutely loved!! I like lots of sauce so I made 1.5 X the recipe. Used half and half and added probably 2 cups of parmesean. This will be my standard recipe from now on!!
This was the absolute best. I did use more cheese than was called for, about an extra 1/2 cup.
Didn't use the cream cheese at all and it turned out really well. Just added a little extra parmesan and asiago cheese. I also seasoned it with a little cayenne and blackening seasoning and fresh garlic. So yummy! This is definitely going in the food arsenal!
Made this tonight for the Wife and Mother in Law, everyone loved it! I didn't have any cream so ended up subbing it with Homo Milk and simmered for an extra 5 or so min, turned out fantastic! I ended up using about a teaspoon of salt to get the right flavour but I recommend starting with a half tspn and wait until after you add the grated parmesan as it will add flavour as well.
