    turned out great! I added a bit more garlic as a preference but it was good on it’s own

    Could’ve used more sauce but it was great! Added Cajun seasoning and more Parmesan cheese to make it more cheesy and it was delicious
    My family loved this Alfredo sauce. Very simple to make and I added more garlic, so it was very garlicky just the way my family likes it. I got a “good Alfredo sauce” from my husband! 🥰🥰 This recipe is a keeper.

    Super simple and the taste is pretty darn good. Next time I may add a bit more garlic to the mix for a sharper contrast.

    Turned out great! My kids loved it! Will definitely make again just had to allow to simmer for about 6-7 minutes at the end to thicken sauce

    I agree with the review before me...”phenomenally drool worthy” for sure!! Ultra easy and I’m not a cook. And it’s all ingredients I had on hand. Cannot wait to make this again! And ps-it’s could easily be called “Olive Garden Copycat Alfredo” tastes exactly the same!

    The sauce is really creamy and tasty but it dries out really quickly, so I had to make extra sauce!

    This turned out awesome. Of course we changed it up a little. No salt but used salted butter instead. We cooked chicken in a pan first with garlic and mushrooms, thyme, garlic and onion powder. Removed the chicken and added the cream-let it simmer-add the cheese and added red pepper flakes 1/2 tsp. The texture was not as creamy as store bought but I actually liked it better. I did not use fresh whole parmesan but prepackaged shredded which turned out fine, but was a little stringy.

    Amazing!! Best Alfredo I’ve ever made - and I’ve made many. Better than jar or even restaurants - actually never had a good one from a jar - but better than Olive Garden by far! Only sauce I’ve had that was better was from a little mom & pop Italian place. This is now my go to Alfredo - super easy, fast and delicious!!
