I used almond milk instead of cream. This was wonderful on rice rotini! Because I really like hot peppers, next time, I might even try a habanero peppers instead of the jalapeno one! I loved seeing that bit of green in the sauce!

I'm sorry but I made this exactly as written and it was unedible. I had high hopes with all the great reviews but I will not make again.

this recipe is a big 5 star hit! My husband said that he prefers this alfredo over a traditional one for the savory flavors. I, for once, followed the recipe exactly, and found it excellent in flavor and consistancy. I served it over mezzaluna pasta as a side dish to Italian sausages and peppers. Thank you MsDo, for a winning recipe! Double compliments as I'm of Italian heritage!

EXCELLENT! I loved how this was made with olive oil and no butter. Made exactly as written, but reduced the rosemary to 1/2 tsp. because I was using on 'Alfredo Lasagna Roll Ups' from here and I didn't want it to be too strong, which ended up being just right for us. Also, I had to use more cheese to get it to the consistancy that I wanted. This had excellent flavor! I will definately be using this recipe again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

This was very good. Mine seemed a little too thin, but that may have been because I used half & half instead of heavy cream. Next time I will thicken it with a little corn starch. I served this over linguine and added roasted chicken and sautéed bell peppers.

This made a fantastic alfredo sauce. I used 2 garden-fresh jalapenos and a little extra cream/parmesan. The end result served over fettuccine with a grilled chicken breast and Jo's Rosemary Bread was truly restaurant quality. I can't wait to impress some dinner guests with this recipe.

Wow, this is the best white sauce that I have ever had! I followed the recipe exactly, perfection as written. I served this over angel hair with blackened chicken on top. Thanks for the recipe!!!

Delicious alfredo with a kick. I made using fresh rosemary as opposed to dried as I have a lot growing in my garden. The first night we used it as a dipping sauce with french bread. Then we used the leftovers over pasta. It is wonderful both ways - it is very rich to use as a dipping sauce. I think when I make it again it will be for pasta. Thanks MsDo for sharing your fantastic recipe.
