Alfredo Sauce

This is my new favorite recipe.It is so rich and creamy and is delicious with chicken and broccoli. Better than most reasturants and jared sauce.

This is one of my favorite recipes. I use fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. I suggest zapping the cream cheese in microwave for 30 seconds and use a whisk for a creamy sauce. I used this sauce with the Homemade Pizza dough recipe ( chicken, red onion, ) Really good.

Can this sauce be made thicker to be used for on the bottom of a pizza? Dietitian comment: Great idea! I suggest reducing the milk to 1/2 cup and see if the sauce is thick enough. Another option is to add a tablespoon or flour to thicken it.

I make this for my son, who is on a renal diet and for my husband and me, who aren't. We all loved it! I added some cut up shrimp to include protein and flavor. We're definitely having this again!

First time ever making homemade alfredo sauce, I was a little worried about the flavor but it was pretty good the hubby enjoyed it. I added chicken breast and cooked that with mexican seasoning w/ dash more Cheyenne pepper for a kick.

I don't care for cream cheese. Can I use sour cream instead? If so, how much? I am also going to use Vanilla Almond Silk milk. Can you please refigure the nutrients per serving? thanks Dietitian comment: The biggest challenge is preventing the sauce from separating so be sure to keep the heat low.

I see that Davita is switching from non-dairy creamer to low fat milk in their recipes because of phos. Question: I prefer Nestle Coffee-mate non dairy creamer because of the consistency. The serving size is 1 tbsp. Container says it contains less than 2% of dipotassium phosphate. How can I figure out how much potassium & phosphate is in 1 tbsp. Dietitian comment: For 1 tablespoon there is 12-15 mg phosphorus and 30-35 mg potassium. This may be ok if you only use a small amount but when you use 1/2 cup or more in a recipe it really does boost the potassium and phosphorus content, plus the phosphate additives are absorbed almost 100%.

I really like this sauce. I have had it on pasta as well as on chicken. I may even try a version of this on my biscuit and gravy.

what are the measurements to make 1 cup milk out of non dairy creamer? I have not been able to find the recipe for it anywhere!! Dietitian comment: Use the liquid nondairy creamer, not the powdered.

Needs a little more flavor for me. I added Mrs Dash garlic and herb and that did the trick!
