Pinterest is such a great thing. Found this Olive Garden Alfredo sauce (copy cat recipe) on there and definitely is not a sauce to make more than once in awhile. It is not fat free by any means…BUT it is super creamy and yummy! It does indeed taste like Olive Garden’s sauce. I added some leftover chicken to it and cooked up some fettuccine noodles and it was a true 30 minute meal. I would have added broccoli but daughter wasn’t fond of the green veggie. There was leftovers too! Substituting milk isn’t recommend, at that is the consensus from the website I found this on.
