I didn't give it 4 stars, which would indicate a good recipe if not great, because I had to tweak it so much. It might have been my own fault as I read other reviews about using Classico roasted garlic Alfredo as opposed to regular Alfredo, and I thought "yum! that sounds good!". However after it was made, and I put a spoonful in the microwave to taste test it, the dip was pretty darn flavorless. Yes, it was garlic-y but there was a lot of flavor missing to make it right to serve at a party, and it was EXTREMELY thick. So I threw in another 1/3 cup of parmesan - which I grated fresh hoping it would give it a kick. Threw a dab in the microwave, tried it again, still a no go. So I added 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper and 1 tbsp whipping cream to "loosen" up the dip. Heated it, tried it - still not quite there. Finally I threw in close to a whole cup of Sharp Cheddar cheese and a dash more cayenne pepper. Tried it, it was decent finally so I quit. It's OK. Not good or great like I thought it would be from the tons of reviews. Next time I'll use plain Alfredo, probably Ragu, and plain ol' garlic just like the original recipe calls for. If its better (which I hope it is) I'll come back a change my review.
