I experimented with this until I found a quick, cheap, and easy Alfredo sauce combination -- the secret is cream cheese! By Dawn Carter
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 2 cups milk
- 6 ounces grated parmesan cheese
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- Melt butter in a medium, non-stick saucepan over medium heat. Add cream cheese and garlic powder, stirring with wire whisk until smooth. Add milk, a little at a time, whisking to smooth out lumps. Stir in Parmesan and pepper. Remove from heat when sauce reaches desired consistency. Sauce will thicken rapidly, thin with milk if cooked too long. Toss with hot pasta to serve.
I was craving creamy alfredo, and this is very easy and tasty. Ironically, I found your recipe Dawn Carter on allrecipes. com. Thanks so much for sharing!
