      I CANNOT thank you enough for this recipe! I am a vegetarian & won't be eating turkey for Thanksgiving this year!! I enjoy pasta once in awhile & had this recipe tucked away. Tried it today as a "test run" & it was fabulous, easy & will hopefully taste wonderful tomorrow w/ some whole wheat spag. I used Zaar to make 1/2 cup of this recipe. Added italian seas, garlic powder, butter buds & skim milk. It thickened just fine (something I was worried about) & found the directions so helpful. I hope to use the extra sauce on tomorrow's potatoes or green beans!

      Made this tonight and it was great! I added 1 tsp low sodium chicken broth powder to it. I used this sauce to make a pasta dish using ziti, shredded chicken breasts and spinach. It was a lovely meal and my 4 year old even cleaned his plate. I will be making this again. Thanks for a lower fat alternative to Alfredo Sauce.
