dry fettuccine pasta
1 (8 ounce) package
grated Parmesan cheese
I used butter instead of margerine and I sauteed some fresh minced garlic and onion in with the butter before adding the other ingredients. I added A LOT more milk to get the sauce to the consistancy I wanted and even then, it was too thick as we were eating it which made it unappealing. The flavor was great. I would make this again but I would add something else to thin out this sauce (like maybe chicken broth) and maybe cut back on the cream cheese.
This should be called cream cheese fettucini. It does not taste like the traditional one. My family didn't care for it.
Delicious! Here's what I did... I used 8 oz of medium shell pasta, 2 ounces cream cheese, 2/3 cup parmesean, 1/4 c half and half and a few tablespoons of margerine. I added more parmesean as the sauce cooked, added a tablespoon of freshly chopped basil rather than dried, used powdered garlic, then added about 8 ounces of crushed tomatoes. It made a very pretty pink sauce that was outstanding. Thank you for the basics... I wouldn't have tried the ingredients without the blueprint!
Very tasty sauce. I ended up throwing in some red onions as well. I found adding a bit of lemon juice (about two caps' full) helped deplete the clumping, much like it does in fondue.
GREAT (and easy) recipe. I always used DIGIORNO - ALFREDO SAUCE but they took it off the market in my area. I have tried many, many alfredo recipes and this one has won by a landslide!
This recipe was perfect and very easy! It tastes just like Olive Garden with blackened strips of chicken added! I will cook this for company over & over! Thanks.
This was good. Next time I'll use a little less cream cheese.
This is sinful. Very rich and filling. I doubled the recipe for the sauce and had sauteed and cubed a chicken breast which I added to the sauce while cooking the pasta. I will make this again. The sauce does get very thick when it cools, so I may add an additional 1/4 cup milk next time I try this one. Also we love garlic so I will increase the garlic to 1 Tbls.
