Never buy alfredo sauce again.This makes a great base for cheese sauces. ;)

Thanks, Doug! I found a recipe for country club chicken that calls for condensed cream of mushroom soup and was planning to look up your alfredo sauce recipe so I can use it instead. You saved me the trouble!

Hi Sarah! :)

I add fresh sliced mushrooms to this and it's WONDERFUL!!! ;D ;D ;D
Who needs Campbell's soup when you have this?... It's sooo much better!!! :)
What you do today is what matters!

I have got to try your recipe Doug. I bought some of the Bertolli alfredo sauce in the jar last week, but I KNOW your home-made would be much better.   
Oh....instead of pasta, I shredded up long pieced of cabbage and boiled it until there was NO crunch.  It made for some nice "pasta"  (...though I can't say "pasta" like Doug does!   :D  :D  :D)

I recently used this recipe to make the sauce for macaphony and cheese.  Yum.  Even the kids liked it.
