    This is the best Alfredo recipe that I have ever tied

    Awesome recipe. Pressed some of the garlic into the sauce after simmering but, other than that, no other adjustments necessary. Since I had all of the ingredients on hand, it was definitely a great go to recipe for tonight's dinner.

    Before I make this, how many did it feed for?

    Easy and very tasty. I have tried several different recipes, and this was by far the easiest and tastiest. I used a mixture of half and half and whole milk, and it was still delicious. You can easily add mushroom or bacon to jazz it up. Good go to recipe when I am in a pinch and need something quick.

    I made this tonight for my kids and they loved it! I added chopped bacon and then cooked the chicken in the bacon grease, omitting the butter. They asked to have the leftovers for lunch which they never do. This recipe is a keeper.

    This was such a great recipe. So simple, and so delicious ! I kind of made it my own and used left over turkey from thanksgiving, instead of chicken, and added a nice handful of parlsley and basil... Yum .

    This was the BEST alfredo I've ever had! And SO easy to make! I'm seriously deficient in the kitchen, but I did it! Thank you so much, Martha. <3

    Excellent! My family really enjoyed this dish. I used 1/2 & 1/2 instead of the heavy cream -- it cut down 1/2 the fat and was still yummy!
