dry fettuccine pasta
1 (8 ounce) package
salt and pepper to taste
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cooked and cubed
chopped fresh broccoli
chopped red bell pepper
The easy fix is what makes this recipe a winner. This is barely enough sauce for more than 2 diners and I have to serve 4, so I used 12 oz cream cheese, 1/2 cup butter,1 c milk. I cooked the red peppers with the chicken. I also tossed the broccoli in to cook with the pasta so it would be "easier" on the kids, skipped the zucchini, and topped off w/parmesan.
I did not care for this. I prefer the classic alfredo sauce.I love cream cheese but not in this dish. On the other hand my husband loved it.
At first I thought that this was going to be a flop because the butter and cream cheese just curdled and looked terrible. I stirred it with a wooden spoon and didn't know why it wasn't working. the recipe says to mix it over low heat until smooth. I was about to throw it away but I didn't have anything else to feed my kids and stuck with it, hoping to make something of it. I upped the heat to medium and used a fork to stir it. after five mins of this it finally starting looking like alfredo sauce and after that it was easy. 4*
Absolutely AMAZING! I have never had an Alfredo sauce like this one! The most expensive/fanciest restaurants do not compare.
Alfredo sauce has been my nemesis for years until now! This recipe is fabulous. I used low fat milk and cream cheese and did not find it heavy or sticky. I used real garlic insted of garlic salt and substituted asparagus for broccoli. Fabulous meal!
This was soooooooo good! I'm very picky about my sauces that I make. I NEVER buy the store bought stuff in jars so I try and make my own. This was very easy and so tasty. My hubby even liked it. I added 1/2 cup more milk, fresh mushrooms and a diced tomato for garnish. I will make this again. I think it would be great with shrimp too.
Very good; but I could see there wouldn't be enough sauce, so I halved the amount of veggies and chicken. WHEN I make it again, I will double the amount of cream cheese and milk; and also I would make more pasta. I might spice it up a bit also; but that is just for my personal taste.
This sauce is so creamy and very tasty! Very easy to prepare. I added a bit more garlic and it turned out wonderfully! My husband is picky about his alfredo sauce and even he loved this one!
