Homemade Alfredo Sauce

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Boomette

A recipe from Fast Fix Family Food Better Homes and Gardens cookbook. In the description it's written : A little cornstarch in this sauce keeps it from curdling after it thaws and helps it reheat to a nice, creamy consistency - perfect for pasta!

I thought this was a little bland so I doubled the pepper & added 1/2 tsp of salt. I'm not a big fan of garlic so I did reduce the amount used. Served over yolk-free wheat egg noodles. Made for Ramadan Tag 2010
