Alfredo Sauce (from the Pantry)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Connie K

This is a quick and easy alfredo sauce, and I always seem to have the ingredients on hand. I don't claim it is authentic, but it is tasty, with the addition of garlic. My picky son LOVES it!

We have made this often and find it to be both tasty and convenient. We have used Neufchatel (1/3 less fat) cheese and 2% milk with good results. Also, we like to replace 1/2 cup of the milk with 1/2 cup white wine for additional flavor. It is good over pasta, chicken, broccoli, or aspargus. Thanks for sharing this one!
