    GRITS~N~MS's Note:

    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!!

      This is a great base to start a sauce my family likes. I use 6-8 cloves of chopped fresh garlic that I sautee with chicken for the last 2 minutes of cooking, about double the fresh grated parm, milk instead of cream, and thin it out with chicken stock because it turns out very thick if made by the recipe. I also use white pepper instead of black- I've always been taught that you don't use black pepper in a light sauce. No one knows what the little black things are in their sauce :.s The cream cheese adds a nice richness to it and a beautiful, velvety texture that we really do love!
