If you are cooking for a larger group, rather than boil down to 1 cup, why not add a couple of chicken boullion cubes and then maybe add a little extra cheese to the mix and of course you may need to add to the pasta for the larger crowd.

I can't wait to try this next week. I just made chicken alfredo with fettucini noodles that I thought looked good but it wasn't a hit at all. It called for 1 1/2 cup butter which in my opinion was way too much. Also called for 32 oz of ricotta cheese which gave the sauce a very grainy texture. I'm not sure if ricotta cheese should be in Alfredo sauce because it doesn't create a smooth and creamy sauce that I'm more familiar with. I'm really looking forward to trying the lighter version especially when this recipe calls for fresh garlic.
