    Dotty2's Note:

    I got this recipe out of a FAMILY FAVORITES cookbook that was put together at a school for a fundraiser. This is the best Alfredo sauce I have ever eaten . It is so easy to make. You could make a lighter version by useing light cream cheese. Not nearly the amount of calories of regular cream

      This is fantastic! I first sauteed some mushrooms and spinach in the butter for just a bit, then added the garlic and the cream cheese. Since I found I didn't have any evaporated milk, I thinned the sauce with chicken broth instead. I served it over tortelllini and my family loved it! Thanks for the recipe!

      This sauce is incredible! Handy tip, though: If you find it's too sticky, cut back on the cream cheese. Cream cheese is a binder, so the more you use, the stickier it gets. I love it though!
