I also used a garlic press instead of the whole cloves; MUCH easier! I actually used more garlic and black pepper...we added poached boneless chicken breast and had a FABULOUS meal! OMGosh, we haven't eaten Fettuccine Alfredo in 7 years, and this was better than any we remember having!! Really a very delicious dish! Oh, and I also splurged on some really great Italian Parm/Reggiano (didn't use the pre-shredded stuff). Great flavor & mouth feel!!

Alfredo di Lello, the Roman restaurateur who created his signature sauc.e in the 1920s, might be startled to find this streamlined version that still tastes rich enough to satisfy those deep creamy-pasta cravings. The addition of zucchini boosts the nutritional profile. And when cut into thin strands, it can be twirled gracefully on a fork.

Overall, delicious recipe. My picky toddler loved it and that was the whole reason I tried this recipe. Next time, I would adjust the spices to provide more flavor.
If you're going to tout the healthy whole grain pasta, why show a picture of the less healthy but tastier white pasta?
I haven't tried this recipe but I would simply zest the garlic clove into the broth before cooking and eliminate the blender step. Easier clean up and no blending hot liquids.
This was nice and easy to make (directions are a little vauge though). It was creamy and filling enough to satisfy my craving for this normally unhealthy dish. Since I don't really eat chicken, I added Quorn tenders and it was perfect!
