Yummy Alfredo Sauce

Don’t ask how many calories are in this sauce, just enjoy it. ;)

INGREDIENTS (Nutrition)

1/2 cup butter

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese

2 teaspoons garlic powder

2 cups milk

6 ounces grated Parmesan cheese

1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

DIRECTIONS

Melt butter in a medium, non-stick saucepan over medium heat. Add cream cheese and garlic powder, stirring with wire whisk until smooth. Add milk, a little at a time, whisking to smooth out lumps. Stir in Parmesan and pepper. Remove from heat when sauce reaches desired consistency. Sauce will thicken rapidly, thin with milk if cooked too long. Toss with hot pasta to serve.

(Some reviews said you could use skim milk and non-fat cream cheese.  Still, I think I’d only make this about once a year upon seeing how many calories are in a serving.)
