MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 3, 2014

"This was a tasty easy recipe. The Alfredo sauce was full flavored and smooth. To keep the fat down, I used fat free half n half, and a butter replacement. I also added a sauteed onion and some garlic to mushrooms. I placed in a casserole dish topped with chives and nutmeg. Baked at 350 degrees for 45 minutes until bubbly. Very good!"

"This Alfredo sauce recipe I have tried and my family loves it. Try this for the Alfredo sauce. It does make a lot so add the sauce to your liking!

Ingredients:
1 stick of butter
1 clove of minced garlic
1 pint of heavy cream
1 cup of fresh Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp cream cheese
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp white pepper
Directions
In a sauce pan over medium heat ? melt butter and add garlic and cook for two minutes, then add in heavy cream and cream cheese and heat until bubbling, but do not boil.
Add in Parmesan Cheese and mix until the cheese melts.
Sprinkle in salt and pepper to taste (you don?t need to use all of this, do to your liking).
At this point add as much sauce to the gnocchi and mushrooms as you like; sprinkle with parsley and serve."

"It was good, but not great. The sauce tasted like gravy with cheese in it. Maybe the next time I make it I'll add my own twist. However, now I know how to make a basic gravy!"
