    I used this over a parmesan - crusted chicken recipe, and found it AMAZING! I made triple the recipe, thinking it wouldn't be enough, but had plenty left over for many nights later. It goes with many dishes, and always tastes great by itself, having it again tonight as a pasta! Even my Saucier boyfriend loved it! :) thank you so much for this recipe!

    Made this tonight and it was great! I added 1 tsp low sodium chicken broth powder to it. I used this sauce to make a pasta dish using ziti, shredded chicken breasts and spinach. It was a lovely meal and my 4 year old even cleaned his plate. I will be making this again. Thanks for a lower fat alternative to Alfredo Sauce.

    I CANNOT thank you enough for this recipe! I am a vegetarian & won't be eating turkey for Thanksgiving this year!! I enjoy pasta once in awhile & had this recipe tucked away. Tried it today as a "test run" & it was fabulous, easy & will hopefully taste wonderful tomorrow w/ some whole wheat spag. I used Zaar to make 1/2 cup of this recipe. Added italian seas, garlic powder, butter buds & skim milk. It thickened just fine (something I was worried about) & found the directions so helpful. I hope to use the extra sauce on tomorrow's potatoes or green beans!

    Good. I did add garlic powder, a dash extra of nutmeg and about a 1/4 cup more of parmesan cheese along with salt and pepper.
