This is my daughter's recipe. When I need a break from making supper, I ask her to make her Alfredo sauce. I can't imagine ever buying a package of Alfredo sauce ever again. This one is just too good!

For something made in this quickly this was very good. It thickens well upon standing and with an added sprinkling of parmesan you can't beat it for a quick lunch, TFS.
