Pretty good! Was going to make homemade pasta to serve with this but ran out of time so put it with spaghetti. I couldn't get this to thicken much so I added more cheese and hoped it would work on pasta after boiling and noticing it was coating the spoon. It did work; although it seemed thin it worked well on the pasta and visitors (hubs' brother sister in law nieces and s-i-l's grandmother) all enjoyed it. I am not a fan of Alfredo but this was a nice enough version for me. I did add chicken to it; I sliced chicken strips cooked in olive oil and garlic put it in a separate bowl and added back in to the sauce once the sauce was done. very nice; thanks for the recipe!
I use a variation of this that I found on this site, and have for years and years. I use fat free cream cheese, and throw in a dollop of fat free sour cream, but I cut the butter to almost nil. Maybe two tablespoons. Fresh ground pepper, garlic powder, and sometimes the parmesan. Depending on the kind you use the combination of garlic and parmesan can be overpowering. We use it for many things and everyone loves it! Our favorite is to make tortellini, fry and slice italian sausage, steam some spinach and artichoke hearts, top it all with the sauce.
I have used this recipe for quite a while. I use neufchatel cheese instead of fat free cream cheese and "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" instead of butter. I also add 2 cloves of freshly minced garlic and a dash of salt. The garlic and salt gives the sauce an extra boost of flavor. We usually have this with smoked salmon and pasta-delicious!
It was rather bland but since I had more sauce than pasta I made more pasta and added garlic salt & oregano to the remaining sauce and it was very good. Next time I will forgo the garlic powder--use 2 tsp garlic salt instead of garlic powder and add 2 tsp of oregano and a little more pepper too.
My husband who normally refuses to eat anything that's a "healthier" version liked this. I only added 3 Tblsp of butter because that's all I had. And after reading other comments I only used about 1 cup of milk (skim) and added a splash of sherry. Other than that followed the recipe. I served with pasta and chicken which I had sauteed with onions and garlic. Yummy.
I made this for a quick pasta lunch. It's very easy to make! I prefer a thicker sauce so I added a bit more cream cheese. I also added two generous spoonfuls of spaghetti tomato sauce for extra flavor delicious!
