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!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter over low heat (do not burn or sauce will take on nutty flavor).
  2. With a whisk, mix in the cream cheese and whisk until completely combined. (At first it will seem like it won't combine, but keep stirring until it does).
  3. Add milk and flour and continue to whisk.
  4. Once it heats up and is smooth add parmesan cheese and salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  5. Let it sit for a few minute to thicken.
  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.
