10 minute Alfredo Sauce

Found this recipe and I had to share…it was flavorful, semi-healthy, and so quick! I served it with some chicken and pasta. It was a big hit! One thing I didn’t do…but I will do next time is blend all the ingredients well prior to heating in the sauce pan. I just sort of dumped everything in the pan and started to heat…but the cream cheese never really fully stirred into the sauce…still tasted great though!

ALFREDO SAUCE

1/2 cup cream cheese

1 cup milk 0-2 %

3 tbsp. freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1 clove garlic

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper (more or less, to taste)

3 tbsp. dry parsley or 1/2 cup fresh
The best way to make this consistent is to use a blender. Put cream cheese, milk, Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt and pepper in blender. Blend until there are no clumps, pour into saucepan on medium heat, cook for about 10 minutes. While cooking add parsley (if fresh chop finely) and save some for garnish.

Cook your favorite pasta – I recommend spaghetti. If you want you may add chicken, bacon or any of your favorite meats. I find it goes great with clams.
Pour desired amount over pasta. Cook selected meat in sauce to absorb flavor; If seafood, use a different pan and then add over pasta before pouring Alfredo Sauce.

    Wow Tracie. That sounds lovely. I will try it today for my grandson who loves white sauces. I usually make a beshamel and add cheese. This sounds delightful. Thanks.
