“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

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 23, 2014

This was okay. Nothing great. It was missing something to give it the restaurant quality dish taste.

Delicious recipe! My family loved it. Didn't even notice it was made with half/half instead of heavy cream.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 19, 2013

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.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 17, 2012

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.
