Cut the cream down to 2 pints, double the cheese (we used half Romano/half Parm), sub white pepper for black, up the pinch of nutmeg to about 1/4 tsp., add a clove of crushed garlic to the sauce, garnish with flat leaf Italian parsley and you've got a "To Die For Fettuccini Alfredo" goin' on here! Served with grilled chicken, asparagus and garlic toast last night... everyone was in heaven. Thanks Michelle!



OMG!!!!!!! MMMMMM. I changed it a little. I cooked 5 boneless, skinless ckn breasts and cut into small pieces. I cut the cream to 2 pints, but used 1 cube butter. I also added 1 TBSP minced garlic. I used 6 oz romano and 6 oz parmesan instead. I stirred in the ckn when the sauce was about done, added some salt and lots of pepper. This is soooooo good.



It's a good base to start with, but if you make the dish exactly as the recipe says, it is extremely bland. The amount of cheese needs to be DOUBLED and it needs salt. I add shrimp to it which helps as well. It's just alright. I certainly wouldn't "die" for it!
