"From www.TopSecretRecipes.com. This is an updated version of the "Olive Garden" Alfredo Pasta recipe. This recipe includes more grated Parmesan cheese and fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. You'll find this sauce thickens easier and has an improved Olive Garden taste. Just be sure not to crank the heat up too high when simmering the sauce or it could break, resulted in a not-so-creamy, curdled Alfredo."
Serving Size: 1 (249 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"I got this recipe from Top Secret Recipes/Todd Wilbur. I added 12 oz of shallots because I wanted seafood. I also added extra Parmesan cheese. Next time I'll add some fresh parsley. My recipe said this serves 3, but I think it serves more like 6 (although it's easy to keep going back for more). Thank you for posting this delicious recipe!"
"this is a great recipe! i have used it at home and at parties! and i am making it tonight you almost always have the stuff on hand! by the way i use fresh parmesan cheese and i use a dash of nutmeg as well. the only thing i dont like about this is i taste to much butter so this time i will lower it down 1-2 ts. all in all its a GREAT recipe!"
"This was a very good, quick meal! My 5 year old loved it but my husband and I thought it could have used a little more garlic and pepper. I'll definately make it again and make another reviewers suggestion to add nutmeg!"
"Loved it! I have never accually had Olive Garden's Alfredo Pasta (we don't have OG around here) so I don't have anything to compare it to. I did take the advice that Grimm's Restaurant Tales had to offer and added 1/3 c freshly grated romano and a dash of nutmeg at the end. I also topped this with some grilled chicken and more freshly grated parm., it was mavelous! I will definetly make it this exact way again, thanks Momma Loon."
"Not too bad but I deffinately had to add some more salt after it was made. I guess that must be the Puerto Rican in me!"
"WOW, I work at Olive Garden and eat this everyday and I loved it but because I can go in the back and check what's in the pantry I changed a few minor details! 1. I used fresh high quality parmesan, grated it myself, and packed it tight to equal 1/2 c. 2. I added probably 1/3 c. romano cheese. 3. Added a 1/2 t. nutmeg at the very end. Hubby and I were blown away, I'm very impressed!!"
"This is a very easy to follow recipe though I suateed the garlic by itself first to liven the taste. Also, to thicken it I added about 1/4 cup of powdered parmesan and topped the finished product with some freshly chopped parsley. The result was very tasty!"
"I just tried this and it was very good. It was very rich and creamy, but not exactly the same texture as Olive Garden's. I added a little extra minced garlic and mozeralla cheese. Also, 1 T. of flour to help thicken it. I'm excited that I can make something so good at home."
"This recipe was pretty good. Very easy to make! I added some grilled chicken and an extra clove of garlic. It came out nice and creamy. "
"Almost forgot to review... This was very good. I've had Olive Garden Fettuccini Alfredo and this is close. I'm hoping it will freeze. Will see next week if it separates after thawing. Anywhooo, Vicki Lynn, was very good, thanks for posting."
"I took Always in the kitchen connie's advice and added more Parmesean cheese and garlic to the mix. I've never had the Alfredo Pasta from the Olive Garden - so I don't really have anything to compre this too. It was good - very rich and creamy. I added some Italian Seasonings to the mix as well for additional flavor. Thank you for posting."
"I was really impressed with how good this is. It is just like Olive Garden. We had it with shrimp and salad. It was great!!!!!"
"This sauce was wonderfully rich and creamy, but still seemed a little bland, compared to Olive Gardens recipe. I added more garlic and more freshly grated Parmesan to perk it up a bit. "
