This is the perfect base sauce! Since there are few things my kids will eat, and this is one of their favorites, we have this once a week for pasta night. I use unsalted real butter, Frigo shaved Parmesan cheese, and just Great Value brand whipping cream. I dump all three ingredients in the pan at once and then set my burner to the "melt" setting. Just put it on the lowest setting if yours doesn't have a "melt" function. I keep it this low until the butter is completely melted, stirring occasionally. Once the butter is melted, crank it up to medium and let the cheese start melting...it WILL melt and meld, promise! Once the cheese is melted and it's all stringy, I crank up the heat another couple of notches and let it come to a rolling boil, stirring constantly. Let it boil one minute...that's how you get it smooth. Now let's talk flavor. I like very flavorful alfredo sauce. I add salt to taste, several fresh basil leaves, and garlic powder to taste. I add these extras at the beginning. Hope that helps for those of you saying this was bland or that their were timing issues with melting the cheese!
