What a dish! I have a son who refuses to eat any creamy dishes, he happily gobbled this up and asked for more. I used 1 cup of cooked pasta water mixed with chicken stock powder. This recipe is fast, much faster than stated (less than 20 minutes). I added 1 cup of peas and 1 cup of bacon. I will admit that there is a lot of sauce and it coated 500g (over a pound) of pasta - thanks for posting! A great meal for those after school sports nights.

This is a favorite dish of my family's that we usually order at a local italian restaurant. I've tried to duplicate it in the past using jarred alfredo sauce. It doesn't even come close. This recipe is wonderful. I get the authentic taste, and none of the sodium found in the jar sauces. It's so easy to make, and I usually use rigatoni pasta. I also add dried or freshly chopped parsley. I am also going to try adding a small can of cream of mushroom to the sauce. Thanks for this great recipe, I will never use the jar again!

This was really good! I made it with fat free 1/2 and 1/2 instead of cream. I didn't use any butter - just a little olive oil to saute the mushrooms. I also used less garlic, only because I didn't have as much on hand as I thought. I threw in some garlic salt to make up the difference. I needed to add a bit more cornstarch to get the sauce to thicken up, but it eventually did. Will definitely make this again.

My family loved this, my picky 5 year old asked for seconds. I doubled the recipe but still only used 6 cloves. The garlic taste was perfect not overpowering at all. Thanks for the great recipe.

I loved this, but gave it four stars since my family wasn't sure of the intense flavor, so different from jarred alfredo sauce. It was easy to make, I used milk instead of cream. It really thickened up at the end, so I will lessen or eliminate the cornstarch next time. Thank you for supper!

This recipe is excellent. My husband absolutely raved about it! I doubled the recipe and left out the mushrooms but added fresh steamed broccoli. I will definitely make this one again.
