    Totally Awesome!!!! I highly recommend, nice and thick and flavorful. I used one tablespoon of fresh minced garlic, and fresh parsley and dried basil. I passed on the nutmeg also, but gave it a generous dash of fresh ground pepper. Just before serving, I sprayed it with a little spray butter. - 1/24/12

    Very Good
    This was a very good lighter version of alfredo sauce. I used a bit less milk and also added a wedge of Laughing Cow swiss cheese for extra flavor and texture. Delish! - 10/23/11

    This was delicious. Made with 1/2 lower fat cream cheese and 1/2 spinach artichoke cream cheese. Doubled the recipe but I don't think I really needed to, this made quite a bit. My entire family enjoyed it, even the picky kids. Thanks! - 10/18/11

    I wanted to make an alfredo sauce that would be healthier, but still taste good, and this was it. Delicious and easy to make. - 3/18/11
