    I use heavy cream - it wasn’t the healthy option so I added bacon to weigh it down more … incredibly good!! Make a ton of sauce!

    Turned out great! We 1/2 the recipe and added Italian seasoning instead of fresh parsley

    I had all the ingredients on hand (because it’s not complicated) and halved the recipe for our empty nest. We still had plenty leftover for a future meal! And it was quite delicious!

    It turned out fantastic. I appreciate how quick and easy it was to make. I’m also glad to have a recipe that doesn’t make enough Alfredo to feed the entire neighborhood

    Very rich but perfect. This recipe make enough for 3/4 box spaghetti noodles (12 oz dry). Added some Italian seasoning. Used 1/2 2% milk.

    This was awesome! I’ve been making the recipe with just butter, cream, and Parmesan but it’s always too thin for my liking. This one sticks to the pasta, is creamy, great Parmesan flavor and a touch of garlic flavor. There was nothing left in the pot with this one.

    It was delicious! Very cheesy. I did add some fresh cracked black pepper. Highly recommend as a great base Alfredo!

    So good! I grilled chicken on the side, steamed broccoli on the side, and this sauce is simply delicious!

    Very tasty and thick with minimal indredients! I used more butter and less Parmesan for a milder yet flavorful sauce. It was great with angel hair pasta 😋

    it was ok, felt like it was kind of bland.

    Delicious! I added a bit more garlic because I love it, but that's my only change! Will make this again and again!
