Alfredo Sauce (from the Pantry)

"This is a quick and easy alfredo sauce, and I always seem to have the ingredients on hand. I don't claim it is authentic, but it is tasty, with the addition of garlic. My picky son LOVES it!"

    I live a very long way from a grocery store with cream. I was craving shrimp alfredo last night. I found this recipe and it was awesome!!!! (Still shocked I had cream cheese) But very glad I did! I used fresh garlic and added sauteed shrimp. Perfect!!!!

    I didn't have any heavy cream so this recipe was perfect! Super tasty and had such a nice consistency. Easy to make and would make it again!

    So wonderfully rich and creamy. the best alfredo sauce I've ever had! But be sure to use the real parmesan cheese, not the stuff in a can.

    We have made this often and find it to be both tasty and convenient. We have used Neufchatel (1/3 less fat) cheese and 2% milk with good results. Also, we like to replace 1/2 cup of the milk with 1/2 cup white wine for additional flavor. It is good over pasta, chicken, broccoli, or aspargus. Thanks for sharing this one!
