Is the non dairy creamer mocha mix? or can I use lactose free milk, or can I use powder coffee creamer, which does have phosphate? I am new, to eating healthy for my kidney's. Looks tasty can wait to try. Dietitian comment: Yes it is liquid nondairy creamer such as Mocha Mix brand. Many creamers contain phosphate additives now. If you want another low phosphorus option try unenriched rice milk with 2 to 4 tablespoons heavy cream.

My husband LOVES fettuccine alfredo so I was a little worried. I even warned him. End result: He liked it. It's a repeat. We added a small amount of Parmesan on top to taste.

Yummy. I cooked two thin sliced chicken breasts and broccoli in the broth before making the recipe. Then added the chicken and broccoli at the same time as the cheese. I omitted the bell pepper. Delicious.

I am dialysis patient with end stages cirrhosis of the liver. My wife made this and I would prefer it with more sauce.

I made this recipe tonight...delicious! My husband loves pasta. This is a simple recipe and I know I'll make it again. The sauce was just a little thinner than I'd normally like but still very enjoyable.(Kathy)

This was a good recipe. The sauce was much thinner than traditional alfredo, but it was very flavorful.

Our greeter made this recipe for her parents who are both on dialysis. She reports that "they loved it" - it was easy to prepare and tasted great. Her dad, who doesn't like pasta, ate two servings and said he was thinking about going back for a third.
