    This was looking a little thinner than I was expecting. What do I know! I've never made an alfredo sauce before! So I added an 8oz. block of cream cheese.

    I usually just calculate based on how many servings of alfredo pasta we got out of this, for a typical meal. This past Christmas Eve we made this batch (same size) but since there were 10 other dishes it fed 20. Any leftovers will keep in the fridge for about 3-4 days.
