I love Italian food! It is my major weakness… especially fettuccine alfredo. It’s hard to resist that pasta smothered with creamy cheesy garlicky goodness. Most recipes are fairly complicated and long for homemade alfredo sauce. So I made it at home rarely, if ever. Then I made up my own recipe that was quick and easy, yet really yummy too.
4 oz. cream cheese
4 Tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons garlic powder
3/4 cup 2% milk
2/3 cup Parmesan cheese
Dash of salt
Dash of fresh ground pepper
*note – this makes about four adult servings, double as needed for more.
First, put the cream cheese and butter in a small saucepan.
Then add the garlic and the milk.
Next add the Parmesan, the salt and the pepper.
Then put on the stove over medium heat. Stirring it with a whisk as the cream cheese and the butter melt. Once it begins to boil whisk constantly so it doesn’t burn and turn down the heat after about 2-3 min to med/low heat. Let it cook for about 5-7 min more while whisking, until it is a little thicker but not quite the thickness you want your sauce to be. It will thicken as it cools down. If it is too thick on the stove it will be very thick and chunky off the stove.
We don’t always have fettuccine noodles at home and use whatever pasta we have on hand. Last night all I had was elbow noodles, so we had elbow noodles with alfredo sauce!
