""This is an outstanding dish. I always add some shrimp and mushrooms to the dish. I know the shrimp adds more points but it is so worth it. Without the shrimp and mushrooms you get 7 points per serving on the old program. Serving size is 1 cup. Serve piping hot while it's creamiest. Happy eating.""

It was refreshing to have fresh homemade alfredo sauce. It's a great recipe, and quite easy to prepare. I followed the recipe as written (made no adjustments), and it turned out very nice. We all loved it. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Teresa!

Very good we doubled the cheese and used 16 oz of pasta, skipped the shrimp and mushrooms but otherwise made as directed or a very nice dinner accompanied with salad. Thanks for sharing!
