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.

This looks delicious and easy. I've made Chef John's chicken wings (I think they were called Pastrami chicken wings) and minus a little bit of the pepper they were delicious. I can't wait to try this.

Sure looks yummy. But, he doesn't mention just how much cream, and what type to use? Light, heavy, or H&H?

Great receipe. To further cut the calories and fat, I use Land of Lakes Fat Free Half and Half. Have tried store brand versions of half and half, not so good. imo
