Alfredo Sauce

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by GRITSNMS

There is an Italian restaurant that my husband and I just happened upon. It's the real deal, owned and operated by an Italian family. My husband loved their Fettuccine Alfredo, the sauce was so thick you could eat it with a fork. The restaurant is a good ways from home and he had a craving for it, so I looked for a recipe that might work, I found several different ones and kind worked from each one til I found the right combination. It was just what he was looking for so he had me write it down so I wouldn't forget the next time I tried to fix it. I'm bad about that, coming up with a new recipe and not being able to remember it the next time. Thought I might share it. Thick and creamy!

This recipe was good, however I added a few changes. I only used half the suggested amount of cream cheese, added an extra 1/4 cup of parmasan cheese and I added 1/4 cup of milk (in addition to the half and half cream). I added 1 clove of garlic instead of the garlic powder. The sauce was thick and really heavy, but my kids gobbled it up. My son was convinced I ordered it from a restaurant. I will definately make this again. Be careful not to cook too long!!
