    I took away a star because it says to cook while adding cheese on low heat but you should remove from heat while adding cheese. If cheese gets to a point where it’s not melting tap it down on the still warm burner but do not turn on, that’s how you get a grainy texture. I took another star away because this recipe is so thick! I only added half the cheese before it started to really thicken like velveeta texture. Normally I’d make an Alfredo but didn’t have the right cheeses so I used this recipe: added some paprika, doubled the garlic and would have doubled the milk had I known it’d be thick. Needless to say this worked in a pinch but I’ll definitely change up more next time. I wanted to add goat cheese but again because it got too thick I didn’t want to possibly ruin my goat cheese or the sauce.

    Was a little grainy but very good. I used extra sharp white cheddar that was aged for two years. The sauce was rich.

    Don't substitute Pepper Jack cheese!
