    BlondieItaliana's Note:

    This recipe is for a basic Italian White Cream Sauce (like an Alfredo or bechamel) for Pasta, Chicken, Shrimp, etc. You can add other ingredients to suit your liking, this is the basic version - goes great over Fettuccine or Tortellini... you can also add 1 teaspoon oregano or parsley to flavor. If you throw in some bacon, carmelized onion & a handful of frozen peas & serve over pappardelle it is absolutely fabulous!

      Amazing and simple! I made this last week for my family and regular dinner guest. I doubled the recipe didn't change anything except I used fresh garlic instead of the powder. It was absolutely delicious, my children loved it.

      It's just what I need, simple, quick, and importantly delicious! You don't need to buy a jar of white sauce anymore.

      I made this to go along with Tortellini Michaelangelo, which is Tortellini Michelangelo. I substituted fat free half and half for the heavy cream and it came out perfectly.....with much lower fat and calories. I couldn't tell the difference. I also used 2 cloves of fresh garlic for the garlic powder. Very easy and tasty.
