Real Alfredo Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Gatorbek

Don't know where I originally got this, but this is the best alfredo sauce I have ever had outside of a restaurant. I have made it with or without the cream cheese, and with all Parmesan, and it still turns out great. The nutmeg is essential!
