After tasting fettuccine Alfredo at a restaurant, I tried to duplicate the recipe at home. You can't imagine how pleased I was when I came up with this delicious version. Not only does my family love the creamy dish, but my husband prefers it to the one at the restaurant.

I make this recipe using the leftover shrimp from new years eve. I still saute in the butter and garlic and follow the rest of the recipe. The old bay from the shrimp really add flavor to this recipe. Delicious! My husband looks forward to this meal at the beginning of every new year. I also make through out the year using chicken. Kids love it!

I made this two nights ago using one stick butter and 1/4 cup olive oil and it was delicious! I am sitting here eating leftovers tonight with ciabatta garlic bread and it's still yummy...Would be great with chicken.

I liked this a lot. I had to cut a few things in half because of dietary restrictions in our family. So...I only used 1/4 cup butter and I added 2T olive oil. I used 4oz lite cream cheese and we have to live with skim milk here so we did. I added 1T of flour to make sure my skim milk would still make a neat, clingy sauce. Also had to change the salt to Mrs. Dash original. Overall, it was still very good and would be as great with chicken as it was with the shrimp.
