I have adopted this recipe after making it tonight, but made a couple of small changes to the original recipe posted. It's actually pretty good (I've never had alfredo before). Served it and the fettuccini over grilled chicken breasts, with green beans, and garlic bread.

The ex, who very rarely comments on anything I cook, came out and said he really liked it, so hey, if HE likes it, it must be good.
