This is very good and easy. It is way simpler than my usual recipe but tastes completely different. It is quicker to make and I don't need to worry as much with the amount of heat I use. I would recommend to a person who isn't as skilled in the kitchen as I am. Almost impossible to mess up. Love it!

So easy and so delicious. Nutmeg is the secret ingredient.

i made this recipe for the first time tonight and while the flavor was good, the sauce never thickened and i had to eat it out of a bowl. i followed the recipe exactly and dont understand what went wrong.

I have to give this one 5-stars because it's so easy and it tastes great! I still like the traditional alfredo sauce, which is wonderful, but this recipe is SO easy and SO quick and still tastes really good. Besides that, it's 100 times better than the stuff that comes from the jar! I didn't use bacon, because I don't think that would be popular with the family and I did add garlic powder to taste. I do highly recommend garlic--fresh or powder, whatever you have on hand. EVERYTHING is better with a little garlic :-)

Was great & very quick! Only used 1.5 slices of bacon & a little less cheese but it turned out really tasty. Also added a 1/4 tsp garlic powder & used garlic oil in the pasta water. Thanks for the recipe!
