Reviews for Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo with Bacon
"We loved this! I'm wondering, the reviewers who say this is bland......do 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."
"My whole family loves it, even my two picky kids."
"I added chopped brocoli to mines with a bit of italian seasoning."
"My family loves this recipe! I would much rather make this then eat it at a restaurant."
