Creamy Parmesan Cheese Sauce

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 6 mins

This is great served over almost any vegetable or cooked pasta. I have also made this on the stovetop. Just stir continuously for about the same amount of time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Microwave cream cheese, milk and parmesan cheese in 1-quart microwave safe container.
  2. Microwave on MEDIUM (50%) 6-8 minutes or until sauce is smooth, stirring every 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in seasonings.
  4. Toss with hot cooked pasta or serve over cooked veggies.
  5. You may want to add some garlic, extra pepper, or other spices because this is a very mild cheese sauce. I have used a couple of cloves of garlic sauted in a little butter, when I cook it on the stove, and really like it that way also.

Very easy to whip up if you have some extra noodles. The only thing I would do differently next time is to use 6 oz of cream cheese instead of 8 oz. I also added some green peppers to give it a pop of colour and it works very well. Great recipe!

Made this sauce as directed, did sauté the garlic in butter as recommended.....what can I say? Blah. It tasted like melted cream cheese which is not what I was hoping for from a Creamy Parmesan sauce recipe.
