    M&Mers's Note:

    In this flavorful dish, you can adjust the amounts to suit your personal tastes...I happen to like garlic and Parmesan cheese. If you have any leftovers, you can add a little more milk and heat briefly in the microwave oven.

      This was good and easy to make. I had a pound of shrimp so I used it all. I cut back on the garlic as I thought it would be too much for us. I also didn't have green onions so used onion powder. I also used 2% milk instead of whole milk as that is what I buy. I added the parmesan cheese to the sauce mixture. I doubled the sauce ingredients as I was also making mahi mahi so I topped it with the shrimp alfredo. We all enjoyed this.

      This was really good. Did not have the onions and added twice the garlic. Only trouble I had was with the sauce thickening up I added a cup of cream with two table spoons of cornstarch, in addition to the cup of whole milk and teaspoon of cornstarch, it was thick just like I like it and creamy. I will make this again even without the shrimp maybe with chicken some time. Yum.

      I've always hated Alfredo sauce from a jar, but the addition of heavy cream made it taste homemade. I made this exactly as stated and it was FANTASTIC!. - I'll try it with chicken next time.<br/><br/>Easy to make -- a definite keeper. Thanks!!!!
