I thought this recipe was fantastic. I added more garlic, an extra tablespoon of parmesan and a bit of thyme when I made it for a little more flavor. Letting the butter/flour/milk mixture thicken is KEY to a thick, creamy sauce that tastes almost like traditional full fat alfredo sauce. Thanks for posting!

This was a very good, basic recipe for a sauce that weighs much less on my conscience that a regular alfredo sauce. I thought it needed a few (slight) adjustments. I put some salt and garlic powder in it, along with a bit of thyme. I'm looking forward to altering it a bit in the future (perhaps blending some roasted red peppers into it? hmm...) All in all, thanks!

Wasn't sure what to make for dinner tonight and the idea for pasta with alfredo sauce came to mind so I searched recipes and found this one. I only had some very basic ingredients on hand so this recipe was perfect! Used skim milk and took my time letting all of the ingredients heat through and blend which resulted in a thick sauce with wonderful flavor. I will be making this again soon!

this is a great recipe... I added a little cayenne pepper and lots of red crushed pepper because I LOVE spicy food

The sauce is really good. I admit I was worried about it thickening because it does take time to thicken, but it did thicken in time to be ready when my pasta was. It made for a great cold day sauce. I used 2% fat milk because what I had on hand, though I will try it with 1% next time. I think it would be good with shrimp or chicken too.

This was nice, but the more I ate of it the more the taste seemed to dissipate. I didn't have any fresh garlic and had to use powder though. I think I was a little impatient with the thickening too :) I will definitely make again with this in mind, it's really good for a low fat sauce.

Take your time to let it thicken before adding the cheese and it will come out PERFECT!

Perfect for a recipe I was making, which called for jarred Alfredo. I'm not too fond of the jarred. I used 1% milk and increased it by 1/2 cup, as I needed slightly more then the serving size suggested. :)
