    Fantastic recipe! So rich and delicious, better than any Alfredo sauce I’ve had at restaurants

    The recipe itself is good, but a little bland. The site hosting it is the problem, there are so many ads and pop ups it's hard to even use the recipe.

    Decent sauce. Although, beginners out there, yes you do have to add the parmesan SLOWLY or you could ruin the sauce.

    Everybody enjoyed it. It just seems like a lot of extra sauce in the end. I also added just about a teaspoon of Chili Pepper. It was delicious though definitely easy to make.

    It turned out well. I only had shredded Parmesan so it was pretty cheesy. I had to add ~1/3c extra cream to even it out. If you only have shredded cheese I would add only 3/4c at first and then add to taste. I added ~1/2c cooked, leftover bacon, chopped, at the end. As always, I served my pasta on a bed of fresh greens. I topped it with halved cherry tomatoes, roasted bell pepper, and chicken breast. I’ll be trying this out again.
    It is delicious! This recipe is effortless, too. I added sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke and a small amount of pesto. I will make it again!

    This Alfredo sauce was so good I substituted one cup of heavy cream for 2% milk and I thought it was thick enough and not as fatty.

    My kids loved it, I thought it needed more flavor and more salt.
    Super easy and fast recipe! The only thing is that I had to add a little bit more of heavy cream because it was too cheesy, but other than that this sauce was super easy and delicious! This recipe will make you never want get store bought sauce!

    Quick and easy! Basic and simple, but yummy! My boyfriend made it for dinner last night (pregnancy craving satiated). We didn’t have the full amount of shredded parmesan and are at 6500 feet above sea level, so he added a bit of flour to thicken it. In our opinion, it needed a bit more flavor, so he added a dash of Italian seasoning. We look forward to making it again with the correct amount of parm; I’m sure it will be even better!
