This sauce is fantastic and easy to make. A friend shared this recipe, and now it is the only one I use. The cream cheese is the secret, and it makes the sauce rich and delicious. It is not for people on a diet, and I make this for special occassions. My family is always requesting this sauce. My family loves rich food, and this recipe definitely meets that criteria. If you don't like your alfredo sauce to rich, I would suggest using another recipe or using regular milk. This is the best sauce I have ever had, so enjoy!
