Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce
I found this recipe on 6/2. I am a simple type of cook! I don't like alot fuss & definitely not alot of mess! Plus I like things to have fresh & simple taste! I wasn't really sure about the cream cheese, but figured I would give this recipe a try. It was very easy to make,extremely creamy, and tasty!!! Since I don't use whole milk, I used 1% milk and also fresh garlic. I think because I used 1% milk, it didn't quite thicken like I wanted that night. Plus I made the sauce pretty late at night. So I would imagine it would have thickened a bit better had I made the sauce at a more reasonable dinner hour. I probably could have let it thicken a little while on medium heat. But again, it was late & I was hungry! I definitely will use this recipe again! I may try it with light cream cheese and 1% milk to see how that comes out!
6/26- I made this recipe again and decided to do it with whole milk this time. I was making it for me and my boyfriend at his place. Not sure if it was his stove or what. But when I tried to melt the cream cheese, it really just wouldn't melt. So intstead of just wasting it, I put the melted butter and 'sort of' melted cream cheese in a blender. Then I added the 2 cups of milk, garlic, a bit of salt and pepper. That all blended very well! Lastly I put that mixture bank on the stove to heat it up and added the parmesan cheese. It thickened really quickly! My boyfriend loved it and said it was extremely creamy! I loved it too! It was even better than the
