    Chef Jan54321's Note:

    This is a very creamy sauce. As its name implies it is very easy...I love to do it with cooked shrimp and what ever fresh veggies I have and put it over noodles. You can use any meat you like. I cook the meat in a separate pan and pour the Alfredo sauce over when cooked. YUMMY!

      Melt butter over low heat (do not burn or sauce will take on nutty flavor).

    3. 3

    4. 4
      Once it heats up and is smooth add parmesan cheese and salt and pepper and stir to combine.

      Let it sit for a few minute to thicken.
    6. 6
      Lower fat recipe. Follow directions above--it will be slightly thinner, but will thicken upon standing.

      This is a delicious short cut to a good Alfredo. I am a retired certified chef, so iIput it together differently, I melted the butter and added the flour to make a frothy roux, then added the cream (used 1/2&1/2) to make a white sauce, THEN added the cream cheese and parmesan. This made melting the cream cheese easy. I seasoned with white pepper, granulated garlic and a tiny pinch of nutmeg. I used it to make a white pizza with spinach chicken and mushrooms very nice!

      This definitely lived up to the name - it was super easy; and even better, super tasty as well! I cut it down to 1/4 recipe (ended up with enough sauce for two servings as a side dish.) I used Neufchatel cheese and fat free half and half with 2 tsp flour for the 1/4 recipe. I went to make this and found my Parmesan cheese had molded so instead used a Dry Monterey Jack that is similar to Parmesan. This was a great way to use up some cream cheese and half and half that were sitting around. Thanks for sharing! [Made for Spring 2013 Pick A Chef]

      Absolutely wonderful!! I cut the recipe in half for DH and I and did add some crushed garlic but otherwise followed the instructions and wished that I made the full amount. Definately a keeper and going into my Favorites of 2013. Next time I think I will add some vegies, chicken or shrimp. Thank you for posting! Made for Spring PAC 2013. P.S. served this with chicken breasts using Easy Italian Chicken Marinade#492760 and Dill Buttered Carrots#491010.
