"My first time ever making fettuccini alfredo, and it was so easy, but more importantly, it was AWESOME. I followed the recipe to a "T", then added cooked shrimp. The creamy texture, satisfying cheese...yum. Adults and kids absolutely inhaled it. Needless to say there was not a crumb leftover, which is what I like!"

"Following the recipe, this is easily the worst 'Alfredo' that I've ever eaten in my life. The sauce was not creamy, and the parmesan cheese gave it an unpleasant tang that I couldn't get out of my mouth fast enough. I will not be making this again."

"So easy! I also sautéed 4 garlic cloves (sliced). Then I added about 1 tsp garlic salt and 1 TBSP pasta sprinkle (Penzey's) at the end."

"I sauteed garlic in a little olive oil and also added a little pepper. quick, simple and the kids love it! Also, my daughter is lactose intolerant, so I used lactaid milk, margarine and Kraft Parmesan cheese is lactose free."

"Good, but made way too much as a side dish for 2. Next time I'd use 2 oz. pasta."
