Serves: 6
  • ½ c. cream cheese (I use Neufchatel)
  • 1 c. milk (I use skim)
  • 3 T freshly grated parmesan
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or crushed
  • ½ tsp each salt & pepper
  • 3 T dry parsley or ½ c. fresh (I hate parsley, so we leave this out)
  1. Put cream cheese, milk, Parmesan, garlic, salt and pepper in blender; blend until there are no clumps. Pour into saucepan on medium heat, cook for about 10 minutes (stirring every couple of minutes). While cooking, add parsley (if fresh, chop finely) and save some for the garnish (or leave it out completely.)
  2. Cook your favorite pasta. Pour desired amount of Alfredo sauce over pasta. Cook selected meat in sauce to absorb flavor; if using seafood, use a different pan and then add over pasta before adding Alfredo sauce.
