This is slightly similar in taste to an alfredo sauce, but with a few critical, less-fat differences. True alfredo sauce is made with butter, cream, chicken stock and flour. This sauce is made with olive oil, butter, garlic, and a bunch of other fresh ingredients. I created this in about twenty minutes after a long day at work, trying to use what I had on hand in the kitchen. I knew it was a "keeper" when my notoriously picky (butter-and-cheese-ONLY-please) toddlers loved it. If possible, you'll want some crusty parmesan bread to sop up the sauce!
