    I sauteed garlic, mushrooms, spinach, and sun dried tomatoes and added them to the sauce. It was awesome! - 8/11/09

    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

    Tasty! I also added mushrooms and cut it back to 2 servings: 2 ounces of nonfat cream cheese, 1 clove of garlic, 1/4 cup of 2% milk, 1 mozzarella cheese stick cut up in chunks, 1/8 cup of a 3 cheese blend (parmesan, romano and asiago). Perfect portion! - 9/6/13

    This was so good! Just as good as regular, full fat Alfredo. My only question is what exactly is the serving size? - 9/13/12

    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
