"We loved this! I'm wondering, the reviewers who say this is you season your chicken and pasta? I mean, I do follow recipes pretty much exact, but I always season my meat and other ingredients, such as pasta or vegetables, with kosher salt and pepper. We seasoned up our chicken while it was cooking, along with the fettuccine, and this was absolutely heavenly! Had to leave the shrooms out for my husband's preference, but I'll make this again when he's working out of town! Love it!"

"I felt this was rather bland too. I added three garlic cloves, but omitted the paprika. Instead, I added a bit of nutmeg, which is normally used in Alfredo sauce. The sauce didn't thicken up and was very runny. I used one cup of milk and one half cup of fat free 1/2 n 1/2. The second night, I made a regular Alfredo sauce and added it. It was very good and I added a bit of flour to the sauce to thicken it."

"This was a good recipe for Alfredo but it needs a lot more garlic, in my garlic-loving opinion anyway! Didn't add the mushrooms as most of the family doesn't like them... And I also like to add the bacon to each individual portion - I prefer crispy bacon and it doesn't stay that way long when mixed in with the pasta."

"The recipe was delicious. I bought a package of Alfredo sauce that I was going to add to it just in case it tasted bland, but I did not find the need to include the sauce. I used low-fat half and half. I also added about a cup of chopped broccoli to the recipe. I would probably add a little more garlic next time."

"I made this for a Sunday dinner and it was excellent! This was thoroughly enjoyed by five adults and three children ages 7,4 and 3.I doubled the recipe but put in 8 oz. of mushrooms since not all of my family like them. I just made it two weeks ago and already requests are being made again. I also used 1 lb. of bacon and all the drippings. None of us found this bland at all."
