"This recipe was very flavorful. I liked the addition of onion and peas. I switched out and used whole wheat pasta and omitted the chicken. It was very fast to make. Rich and creamy. I would make it again."

"My family really enjoyed this recipe. Who knew you could make Alfredo sauce from scratch...until this recipe (grin). I did knock down the cayenne from 1/8 teas to just a dash, and it was awesome. I've also prepared the recipe, but used rice in lieu of pasta for a it too. Thank you!"

"Overall the whole family liked this recipe. the 6 oz of noodles weren't near enough for 2 adults and 2 teenage boys though. And next time I will be adding a skinless, boneless chicken thigh as the meat didn't have enough flavor."

"this recipe is not good. The sauce wasn't creamy and it tasted boring."
