Wonderful recipe! I made it last night for my husband and it was quick and delicious. Based on suggestions here, I left out the lemon and added some cut up chicken breast, minced garlic and fresh parsley. It tasted wonderful and was easy to prepare when I got home from work.

The addition of lemon made the parmesan cheese clump up into little clots, and the sauce was thin and watery. I had to strain the fettucine and start over from scratch. I will definitely NOT be making this recipe again.

This was a really great recipe. My husband and I agreed that it had a touch too much lemon in it. The next time I make it I'm going to cut out 2/3rds of the lemon. Also to add a bit more bite to it I substituted 1/2 of the parmesean with romano cheese.

Excellent recipe although for me, the recipie seemed bland so I added garlic and onion. Next time, I will add more cheese (maybe Romano) to give it a little more bite and flavor.

Recipe had too much lemon in it for an Alfredo sauce. If I use it again, I will definitely cut that ingrediant down.

Made this last night..so easy and yummy too. Added some chicken,shrimp,and mushrooms, forgot the lemon...but it came out great. Very versatile, will make again.

Sorry but this recipe was definetly not a keeper.. It was very very grainy, was very bland, no flavour at all. And the lemon was incredibly strong.. I had to add a whole bunch of spices and stuff to make it taste okay.. I think I will try a different recipe next time.. Thanks for your effort though.

Very easy to make but a bit bland. I used a pinch of garlic powder, salt, and thyme for flavor. Also, I grilled some chicken and tossed it with the pasta sauce. I used evaporated whole milk instead (only thing in the cupboard) and the sauce was creamy. Made some homemade garlic bread to go with it for a hearty meal.
