    OMG! You would not know this was healthy unless you already tastes so good I felt guilty afterwards! I mixed fresh mushrooms and broccoli in with the sauce and served it with a grilled chicken breast over whole wheat Penne Pasta and it was DELICIOUS!!!!!!! A definite keeper! - 8/24/08

    This was absolutely OUTSTANDING!!! I cannot remember the last time I ate, let alone made, alfredo sauce because of the high fat ~ THIS recipe however, has changed my mind forever! Doubled the recipe, used 2 cups evaporated skim milk plus too plus skim milk ~ did not double garlic ~ DELISH! - 1/4/11

    Are you kidding me! This was AMAZING! When I was looking for an alfredo sauce recipe online that was..wait for it ....990 calories per serving!!!!! Then finding this one for 80 cals just goes to show you that cooking light does not mean less flavor! - 4/19/12

    I made this tonight and WOW! This was so easy and SO good. I added chicken and 1 extra table spoon flour. YUM! I will use this from now on. The family LOVED it! - 1/22/09

    Overall, a keeper. It was really good and very easy, especially for a lighter version of a dish I love so much! I know it added more cals and stuff, but it took an extra 3T of flour and it was the perfect thickness. I also added shrimp and imitation crab. My new go-to alfredo recipe! Thanks! - 2/1/13
