I REALLY LOVE Alfredo! Then again, to be totally honest, I really love all Italian food, hahaha. But, with the cream cheese, this is without any doubt The Best Alfredo I have ever tasted. We added some finely sliced ham and mushrooms (to pad it out for a family of 5!) and it was a superlative meal. The sauce is good beyond words and I will never make Alreado without cream cheese again!

I love this Classic Italian Fettuccine Alfredo recipe for what it doesn't have in it, namely jarred Alfredo sauce. The fresh ingredients of homemade Alfredo sauce is far superior, and this recipe shows you how easy it is to make. Thank you for sharing this terrific recipe. I love Fettuccine Alfredo, and now I enjoy it even more.

Not only does the standard alfredo sauce that you find in a jar contain a ton of salt, but there is usually only a small amount of the good stuff in there - e.g. cream and cheese. Many of them are mostly water and vegetable oil. Homemade is definitely the way to go!

Ugh, I can't even say how much I want to make this right now! I am always on the hunt for the best fettuccine alfredo recipe (after having the most AMAZING dish at a restaurant in North Carolina) and I think I'll try this one next!

Is there anything better than the rich, creamy flavor of Alfredo sauce? I don't think so. This recipe is so quick and easy to make, and so much better then the one that comes in a jar. You owe it to yourself to treat yourself to the "real" thing, and make this Classic Italian Fettuccine Alfredo. You and your family will be so glad you did.

Alfredo recipes have to be one of my favorite to make at home. It's so versatile, you can go from eating it as an appetizer with bread sticks to any style of pasta depending on the occasion. I've made it with chicken and broccoli or just plain with the pasta...but I'm betting it would be amazing with seafood too.

My family loves fettuccine alfredo so I have tried lots of different recipes, but never seem to be able to get a nice thick, rich sauce like you do at a restaurant. I'd rather make meals from scratch so I've never tried the jarred versions either. But reading this recipe, I wonder if cream cheese may be the secret ingredient?! I'm very keen to try this and see if it makes a difference! I think I would use fresh minced garlic rather than powdered garlic. Sounds delicious!!

I love pasta and anything Italian really. This is a delicious looking sauce. I was wondering what to make for supper tonight. I think I have my answer. I have some cream cheese in the fridge. I don't have any fettuccine but I do have some macaroni and I am going to use that. I will come back here tomorrow and post a picture!

Yum! Not too much time more than it takes to pop open a jar of the store bought stuff and heating it up. The video is nice and clear, and even though I've no problems with just using a jar of Alfredo sauce when I'm in a time crunch, it's good to be able to make my own when I have just a bit extra time.
