"This is my spin on Alfredo sauce. We love cream cheese, mushrooms and garlic. So I decided to try different ways of creating this tasty dish! Serve with fettuccini, and sliced crusty bread for mopping!"

this just didn't have a good flavor; I think the cream cheese is just not a good ingredient to try to make an alfredo sauce. I made the recipe per measurements, except I used a bunch of mushro...

Yum! I pretty much followed the recipe, that was awesome.

This was delicious! I used shredded Asiago, and it was awesome! I will make it next time with Parmesan just to compare, but I am sure it will be equally great. SO fast and easy! The best alf...
