“This has always been a favorite, so when I started cooking healthier, I tried different ways to lighten it. Less butter and fat-free half-and-half worked well, along with using a little flour to thicken the sauce. " Evelyn Slade - Fruita, CO

"This is a great simple recipe. I used raw shrimp and fried them in a pan with a bit of butter and garlic powder before adding them to the sauce. Delicious."

"Just wondering, do you have to use cooked Shrimp, or could you add the raw shrimp and have it cook in the sauce? Obviously I am not a good cook or I would know the answer. So I look to you for help. The recipe sounds good, and I could do this. Just looking for a bit of help. Thanks!"

"JoyIsaacs -- You didn't review this recipe -- You reviewed your own! I can't review since I haven't tried it yet. I'm sure that following the recipe it will be just the way I like it. Have to give a rating in order to submit so I will give it 5 stars in anticipation of making it."

"I added peas and carrots to this recipe. It made at least 6 servings for my family. I used skim milk instead of fat free 1/2 & 1/2, and the sauce was very thin-not like creamy alfredo should be. Still, for such low fat sauce, it was good."

"This was excellent, although I used heavy cream because that's what I had available. This is my new go-to recipe for Fettuccine Alfredo."

"This was very good and I will be making it again. It was a bit thick, so I may add just a tad of milk to thin it with. chicken would be good in it instead of the shrimp."
