This was pretty good. I used olive oil instead of grape seed oil (although grape seed oil would have been fine) It makes a fairly thin sauce but once tossed with the pasta it thickened up. (Mind you pasta isn't exactly 'skinny') Some steamed broccoli and sauteed mushrooms were great side dishes. Read More

I substituted a few items out; Butter instead of Oil, Almond Milk rather than Low Fat Milk, and Mozzarella instead of Parmesan. ( I did add an extra Tbs of flour) And it turned out amazing!!!!! Read More

I would omit the salt because the cheese is salty enough. I thought the sauce was a little thin but it worked well when mixed into my recipe. It's essential to use a good quality cheese - the green box from the super market isn't going to make the cut here. A half teaspoon of cayenne added a nice kick. Read More

I used the serving option to calculate for 60 people. I made the sauce and added it to cooked chopped up chicken and spaghetti for our church dinner. I had to do this 4 times to make enough to feed approx. 150 people. I got rave reviews. If you are on a budget or have to work with what you have this is excellent. I did use a tad bit more flour. I will be making this for myself at home now! Read More

This was VERY good. I opened a jar of Alfredo sauce from the store and it was nasty so I needed a recipe with ingredients I had on hand. Voila! This recipe was perfect! Simmered cooked chicken in the sauce to soak up the juices. Yummy! Read More

Quite yummy and flavorful! Fit into my calorie regime perfectly. I used vegetable stock instead of chicken just cause that's what I had open. Probably even better with chicken. Will definitely keep! Read More
