It's sad that I had to modify this recipe greatly just so that it would taste good for me. Just by looking at the ingredients, I knew right away it would be plain. So, some changes I made were by adding salt, pepper, cayenne, chili powder, baby portobello mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, and some milk. With my additions, my pasta was much more flavorful. Also, instead of just using parmesan cheese, I added four other kinds of cheese (asiago, romano, mozzarella, & provolone).
I still can't believe many reviewers just went with the exact recipe and thought it tasted good. Honestly, I find it just to be the base recipe and you're supposed to add in other things to it. WHY??!?!? (That would be so plain and boring!)

P.S. To the people who thinks Olive Garden's alfredo dish is amazing...Olive Garden does not use many fresh ingredients. They use a lot of packaged/frozen food. I do not consider Olive Garden a real, authentic Italian restaurant. The only freshly made thing they got are salads and breads. Everything else, they reheat. Also, they use a lot of MSG and salt. Please do yourself a favor and treat yourself to an actual authentic Italian restaurant.
