I made macaroni and used this sauce with chunks of chicken and broccoli. It was delicious and my dd and grandchildren ate their hearts out. I found the kids humming a tune as they ate. They were happy!

No cayenne for us but otherwise followed the recipe. It was easier to make then I thought it would be. Great with linguine noodles! So rich and creamy.

I made a broccoli, onion and mushroom Alfredo sauce and it came out so delicious. I topped off some penne pasta with it and had a Greek salad to go with it. Every bite was delicious!

I enjoyed this recipe very much. I have always turned away from alfredo sauces, but not this one! I served it with breaded chicken for dinner, and used leftovers for my husband's lunch.
