This recipe for Fettuccine Alfredo is so easy and delicious that my family requests it constantly! We like this best served with grilled chicken breasts and broccoli or spinach. If you are lucky enough to have any left over, you can mix them together for a feast the next day. Enjoy!

I have to admit I just took the basic ingredients & didn't follow the recipe but what I ended up with was awesome. If you are interested, I melted 1/2 c. butter on the stove top, and stirred in 2/3 c. half & half since I didn't have any cream. Then, I added 1 1/4 c. shredded parmesan cheese. Tossed with angel hair pasta & added some chicken sauteed in olive oil & 1 clove of garlic. Very delicious! Read More

I really liked this recipe when I tossed it with the warm pasta. Although I had a little trouble with it separating when I added it to a sauce I was preparing on the stovetop. But now that I know this I will prepare the sauce differently and add the alfredo at the last moment. Great short cut recipe. Thanks oh and if you have any left over sauce it is fantastic added to your mashed pototoes! Read More

This was awesome! I did add some garlic powder to the butter mixture. I wasn't sure how it would turn out but as soon as I mixed it in with the pasta it became instantly smooth and creamy. I used portabella mushroom stuffed tortelloni purchased at the grocery store refrigerator section for my pasta. This is a keeper! Thanks Becky. Read More

Pretty good. Nice thing is that you can put it in the fridge and wait for the pasta to get done or chicken. Makes for a never-fail alfredo sauce. Read More

Just what I was looking for simple and FAST. I needed to use a rotisserie chicken up and wanted something other than a casserole. Thanks! Read More
