"Never eat icky jarred alfredo sauce again! This is a weekly staple in my house. Add chicken, shrimp, salmon, or veggies and pasta and Parmesan cheese for a really yummy dish."

"Oh my goodness - what a great sauce, and so simple! I did have to make some variations though, much to my dismay, due to the unexpected realization that I was out of garlic! So, to start a base, I sauteed some onions with garlic powder. I left out the tomatoes because I was making this sauce for the Garlic Chicken Pizza (Recipe #136872). After adding the rest of the ingredients, I simmered it for quite because I wanted a thicker sauce for the pizza. I also added a touch more flour, too. Overall, great sauce!"
"This was very good, especially with it being lower fat, no complaints from my kids. That is saying a lot too, my kids are the "mom what's this red thing?"."
"I haven't eat over my pasta yet, but I can tell you it is delicious. I keep scraping my skillet for a little taste. I kind of messed up though, I too decided to use some canned diced tomatoes, but I used the entire 14.5 oz can. So I added a little extra flour, stock and cream cheese. I'm kind of glad I added too many tomatoes, it has a nice tomato flavor to it. I can't wait until my pasta is done and we get to really eat it. Thank you for posting, I have a feeling I'll be making this again!"
"An easy and great recipe! i used canned diced tomatoes (about 7oz) instead of 2 roma tomatoes. A lot better and healthier than the one comes in a jar."
"This recipe was delicious! I made it for a group of 6 and everyone loved it. My husband said it tasted better than the jarred sauce I normally use, plus it is lower in fat and calories- so that makes it a winner in my book! I will definitely be making this again. I also added some chopped onion while cooking the garlic and some parmesan romano cheese blend."
"This is delicious. It's creamy and so cheesy. Love the combination of everything in it. It tasted like it was cooked with whipped/cooking cream but there really wasn't (probably it was the cream cheese). Had this with the macaroni. Yum! Thanks for sharing, Mrs. McSmith!"
"This was yummy.. I carmelized half a chopped onion before dropping in the garlic, added one extra tomato, and then, (not one to waste! and not wanting to have to figure out what to do with the rest) added the rest of the can of chicken broth. AND I didn't have any mozzarella.. but in spite of it all, this was still YUMMY! It would have been thicker, had I not meddled with proportions. Ladled over tofu (shiritaki noodles) this was wonderful, and very very low in calories. Thanks for the great recipe!"
