Restaurant Chicken Alfredo

I’ve gotten some requests for recipes to make Olive Garden dishes at home.  So when my hubby took me there for my birthday (I know, livin’ the life of glamour : ), I took mental notes and then tried my hand at making some “copycat” versions at home.  First I made some notes, then looked online for others ideas too.  First up was the Alfredo recipe, which it seems ALOT of people want that recipe!  There were many different ideas, the most common of which was to use cream cheese, like my usual recipe.  The Olive Garden website actually had an alfredo recipe on it using eggs in the sauce.  I’m pretty positive they are both imposters.  The only way in my opinion to get the same flavor is to use both parmesan and romano cheeses, FRESHLY GRATED, and let it cook for a bit to thicken naturally.  I was really surprised at how closely this dish resembled theirs.  
Keep checkin back all week for more copycat olive garden recipes!
P.S. This also is great for dipping breadsticks!
