cremini mushrooms, trimmed
onion, cut into chunks
shredded Italian cheese blend
salt and pepper to taste
The onion I used was a sweet onion. I did toss a touch of crushed red pepper flake into this sauce with the salt/fresh ground pepper. That was the only change I made. I tossed this sauce with hot fettuccini noodles. My family has fallen in love with this sauce--I really should have doubled it because everyone was bummed there were no leftovers. This is one of THE BEST "alfredo" sauces we've had in a LONG time.
I made this recipe for my family and they loved it. My husband can't stop raving about this recipe. I added the half and half to the blender with the mushrooms, onions and garlic to make it easier to puree the veggies. I will be making this recipe often. Thank you.
very tasty alfredo sauce, i added a 1/4 tsp of salt and it was delish. will use this in the future.
Tasty base recipe. The garlic was really overpowering! I added more mushrooms to try and mute the garlic. I did also sneak in a couple additional veggies into the blender. The kids ate it and had no idea that they were eating healthy. I'll make it again but with half the garlic.
This sauce is amazing! I literally wanted to bathe in it. It was difficult to stop myself from eating it by the spoonful! I wouldn't change a thing.
Easy, excellent dish!! I added extra garlic and sliced about 6 of the mushrooms; added them with the half and half and let sauce simmer until mushrooms were softened. Also used fresh fettuccine. The dish s a keeper!!
I didn't love this as much as the previous reviewers. In fact, I'd have given it "3" stars for "ok", but Mr. LTH (unsolicitedly) commented he enjoyed it, so that bumps it up to "4". To me, it was kind of bland. It had a nice earthy flavor, but still a bit bland; I found myself really enjoying the bites w/the fresh parm I'd added to the top. I couldn't get the mushrooms/onions/garlic to puree in my blender w/out adding some liquid, so I added some of the pasta water. THANKS for the recipe, evilcookie007!
