If you're looking for a lower calorie version of chicken Alfredo, then this is a decent recipe. However, the sauce is a little bland, so I think I'll stick with the fatty version.

This recipe was very flavorful. I liked the addition of onion and peas. I switched out and used whole wheat pasta and omitted the chicken. It was very fast to make. Rich and creamy. I would make it again.

My family really enjoyed this recipe. Who knew you could make Alfredo sauce from scratch...until this recipe (grin). I did knock down the cayenne from 1/8 teas to just a dash, and it was awesome. I've also prepared the recipe, but used rice in lieu of pasta for a change...like it too. Thank you!

Overall the whole family liked this recipe. the 6 oz of noodles weren't near enough for 2 adults and 2 teenage boys though. And next time I will be adding a skinless, boneless chicken thigh as the meat didn't have enough flavor.

this recipe is not good. The sauce wasn't creamy and it tasted boring.

This recipe is so easy to make, and quite delicious. It's hard to believe an alfredo dish could be this low in calories. I am adding this recipe to my list of easy, quick and delicious meals -

I found this recipe in "The NEW Comfort Food Diet Cookbook". I made it substituting frozen broccoli and 1% milk for the peas and fat-free half-and-half. I actually got my butter a little brown and the dish turned out darker than a photo-quality alfredo, but it tasted great, reheated well and fit well into my healthy eating plan while tasting like I was treating myself. I will definitely make this recipe again.

Great tasting! I only had regular half & half.
