    Better than the first recipe I tried for this sauce although rather than mixing them up I would prefer to try this from scratch

    Wonderful recipe…. Easy enough to even let the kids help oMG and it was good and creamy. Added a little sour cream to it and it was a household hit!! I’ll never buy Alfredo sauce again!!

    Came out way better than I expected. I had to use a little extra heavy cream because it was a little too thick

    A bit too thick at first; added 1/2 cup cold milk...3/4 box penne and diced chicken. Delish!!

    Really good, will make again! Slightly salty so I might skip the salt next time, otherwise it was great Update: Yup less salt and added a dash of Italian seasoning and this is perfect.

    Very tasty! I only had the pre-grated parmesan, so it had a grainy texture. I’m sure if I used the good cheese it would have been perfect. I also sautéed diced carrots, onions and sliced mushrooms along with the garlic.

    Yikes way too thick should double the cream or 1/2 the cheese turned to glue pretty quickly after serving it

    I just wanted to make a quick sauce to go over some noodles I made as a side for dinner. This recipe was PERFECT. I added a bit of cayenne pepper to give it a little razzle dazzle and my family loved it.
