    Yikes way too thick should double the cream or 1/2 the cheese turned to glue pretty quickly after serving it

    I just wanted to make a quick sauce to go over some noodles I made as a side for dinner. This recipe was PERFECT. I added a bit of cayenne pepper to give it a little razzle dazzle and my family loved it.

    Glad to find a recipe that didnt need a block of cream cheese. Able to make with last minute supplies on hand. Needed to add corn starch to help thicken.

    Very good. If you like the alfredo at Olive Garden, then this recipe is very similar. I also added some mushrooms sauted in butter, garlic and white truffle oil. Delicious.

    The recipe needs a little more heavy cream because the Parmesan was a little too overwhelming in the sense that it clumped up to the fettuccine. Other than that, it was delicious.

    Pretty good but nothing fancy. One of those recipes where you can make it a couple times then never need to look again for next time.
