  1. I made this today but served with angel hair pasta. This sauce was very tasty but I would definitely double it next time for a box of pasta! Thanks for sharing.
  2. UPDATE: I made this today and used some lower-fat items and ommissions and this was still awe-inspiring! I didn't use any butter, used 2% milk, and less of both cheeses, prob abt 3 oz gorg cheese and 1/4 cup parm and it was still delicious. ORIGINAL REVIEW: I made only the sauce to use for some steak bites. Hubby and I loved it and we were thinking of other ways to use it - definitely with pasta, maybe add chicken and mushroom or a primavera type with zucchini and asparagus and red bell peppers. The possibilities are endless! Thanks for posting!
  3. Outstanding! Used fat-free half and half, and reduced-fat cream cheese. I expected it to be good, but this was jaw-dropping.
  4. This was absolutely fabulous! I used fat free half and half and full fat cream cheese. This is creamy and delicious! Serve with a green salad for a wonderful meal.
  5. Thick, rich, and creamy! The sauce was absolutely delish! I added chicken to this recipe for a protein boost and used lowfat cream cheese and 2% milk instead of the full-fat options. We really enjoyed this, although I did have to add about two tbsp of milk and another pat of butter because I let it sit a bit long (waiting on the chicken) and it started to congeal. It smoothed out again quickly. What an amazing sauce! I would give 10 stars if I could. We'll be using this often, thanks!
