Alfredo Sauce

This month's Sourdough Surprise is pasta so I decided to make a homemade Alfredo Sauce to go with my Fettuccine noodles.  I checked out this three different links - one, two, three and combined the recipes to make my own sauce.

1/2 c butter
1 - 2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pkg cream cheese
1 c 1/2 & 1/2 cream
1 c milk
1/4 c shredded parmesan cheese
salt & pepper to taste

Melt butter in saucepan over medium to medium-low heat.  Add garlic and cook for a few minutes before adding cream cheese.  Mixture looks curled as cream cheese melts.

Whisk mixture until smooth.  Slowly add milk and cream while whisking to keep it smooth. 

Mix in parmesan cheese.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  If the sauce thickens too much, add a bit of milk.

Cook fettuccine noodles.  Drain well and pour into bowl.

Mix in Alfredo Sauce.

Sprinkle on some parsley.  Enjoy!

This was so heavenly.  Rich and tasty.  We only used half the sauce, so will be making another meal with some add-ins.  Some ideas - grilled chicken breasts, spinach, fried mushrooms and onions, broccoli, grilled salmon . . .   The list goes on and on.
