    Thanks for a good , easy recipe !<br/><br/>I used all the same ingredients except I substituted a gluten free flour for regular flour. It was quick and easy to make , and it tastes good, which is always a good thing:)<br/>I am serving it tonight w/ langoustinos over a gluten free fettucine.

    I wanted to try this receipe because I wanted a low fat recipe. I added chopped mushrooms, chopped onions, and and chopped garlic. It was good but it wasn't great. I also added cubed chicken breasts and shrimp to the mixture. We will definitely eat it again, but maybe we will try a different alfredo sauce.

    This was a great substitution for full-fat alfredo sauce. Even picky DH liked it! My sauce was pretty thin, even after cooking for additional time, so I had to thicken it with a little cornstarch. Great taste and it stuck well to the fettuccine noodles.

    I reaaly enjoyed this sauce. The first time i made it i added some sauteed mushrooms to the mix. added the sauce to some whole wheat pasta, threw in some cooked chicken from the night before,(all this went into a casserole dish) threw on a bit of mozzarrella cheese(low fat) and baked ti! yummmmmm! i need to add though that you need to use the low fat cream cheese not the fat free. the taste is much different(i bought the wrong one the first time) the second time i made it i put it over some penne noodles! this was great! thanks for sharing another great recipe kitten!:)
