This doesn't taste anything like Alfredo Sauce

I use almost nightly for recipes, and normally like what I make. I thought this was the worst thing I've ever made. It didn't have any flavor. I ended up throwing it out. My husband tasted it and thought it was awful too. I had read the reviews that said it didn't really taste like alfredo, and they were right!

Not your typical Alfredo Sauce

This is an excellent sauce, I used it in a spinach lasagna recipe with great results. This sauce, however, doesn't really taste like an alfredo sauce.

This is so quick and good tasting. As a matter of fact, I only had vanilla yogurt on hand and even used that - it still tasted great. Family of five boys asking for more.

Not even close to a first year apprentice`s attempt at alfredo sauce (I know, I`m currently sending three apprentice`s to school). The recipe was given to my prep kitchen and with much guffawing the In-edible food product known as that stuff was presented to me, Try going back to the classic method of preparing this sauce it is truly worth it

A good sauce but not your typical Alfredo taste. We were a little disappointed but did enjoy the meal. We thought it might be better in a casserole.
