Oh my goodness, was this every awesome. I read all the suggestions and made my own variations. I used 1/4 cup of pasta water, and 1/2 tsp of garlic powder. I also bought the Parmesan, Romand & Asiago cheese made by Kraft that is already grated. We live at least 1 hour away from the nearest Olive Garden, and this is the closest alfredo sauce I can find that tastes anything like it. Thank you for posting it. You made my day.
