    This is really really good. I'm a cheese freak & it's the hardest thing for me to give up when I'm trying to lose weight, and this gave me all the happiness of my cheese addiction without the calories!! - 4/9/09

    My whole family loved the sauce, very rich and cheesy. I used blue menu fat free cream cheese and it melted just fine. I also used blue menu high fibre fettucine which complimented it great!!! a keeper for sure - 1/8/10

    I used this to top pizza (Easy Yeast Free Pizza submitted by BRFIED). I used 1/2 the garlic and added 2/3C cooked spinach. I spread it on the crust and topped with a little more mozzarella cheese. It was yummy. Think next time I'll try adding some artichoke and using it w/tortilla chips! - 6/27/11

    This was good, especially for as healthy as it was compared to regular alfredo sauce. I added a bit of cornstarch to thicken it (my fiance likes thicker sauces) and some more mozz cheese for extra cheesy flavor. - 2/8/09
