Brandy Alfredo Sauce

READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by Chef Jean

The brandy gives the sauce a little extra flavor, but it can be ommited. Light cream 1/2 and 1/2 or whole milk can be used in place of the heavy cream.

This was very nice, and simple enough to make. The bay leaf, onion and clove and the brandy make a very unusual and enjoyable flavour. We had this quite late at night, so I substituted the cream for low fat milk to make it a little lighter. Thanks for sharing
