Easy Alfredo Sauce

Easy Alfredo Sauce

This easy Alfredo sauce uses cream cheese, milk and Parmesan.

  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 1/3 cup cream cheese
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • pinch of pepper (white is best!)
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan plus more at the table
  1. Melt the butter. Stir in the cream cheese while stirring with a wire whisk. Add the milk slowly, stirring constantly. Bring just to a very low simmer and cook a few minutes.
  2. Stir in the nutmeg and pepper. Add the Parmesan, stirring until melted.
  3. Cover and let sit until your pasta is done. This sauce is a bit runny but good.

    Most recipes have cream, not cream cheese. You can also substitute half-and-half to cut down on calories.
