    sounds great. I'm going to saute' 1 lb of shrimp in butter and garlic and add to this...Can't wait. I love fetuccine alfredo but get tired of making the sauce so I'm going to cheat and do this...thanks for the recipe.

    I have been living in Italy 8 years now and have never come across any Fetuccini Alfredo. I asked people at work and they laughed, I did a search online and came accross an Italian site that talks about how in America this dish has been dubbed a typical Italian dish but the Italians on there had never eaten it! :) in any case, sounds like a heart attack on a plate (yummy!) we do have similar dishes, really cheesy and creamy ones but they are not called Alfredo.

    super, sometimes I just don't feel up to making the 'full version' alfredo sauce.
