    I made this last night and it was amazing. The kids loved it. It was effortless. I also sprinkled a little chicken bouillon in the sauce.

    Had all the ingredients for the Chicken Florentine Alfredo with Fettuccine, except for the baby spinach. Had just got 10 lbs of fresh asparagus from the farm and used that. (Not the whole 10 lbs!)
    I added canned mushrooms, as well. It was absolutely scrumptious! We love spinach, too, but the asparagus added a more intense flavor! I will definitely make this again!

    I liked this recipe which I used because I had a coupon for the sauce and wanted to try it. It was also perfect because I had all of the ingredients including fresh spinach from a neighbor's garden. The final result was a tasty dinner and it was easy to make. I forgot to add the parmesan cheese at the end but it really wasn't needed anyway. I used some garlic salt with parsley and pepper when cooking the chicken. The chicken seemed underseasoned to me but it got great reviews from my husband who is a picky eater.

Using it w/ other pastas, etc., how to use it, do you add stock, milk,etc. I looked all over the internet, and found nothing, so I had to wing my stuffed ravioli. seemed the sauce a bit thick, didn't know what to do w/ it??
    Please give us more recipies to use the alfredo sauces.
