I have tried quite a number of Alfredo Sauce recipes over the years, and they were either too cream cheesy or too much work for an end result that wasn't very good. This is a QUICK and easy recipe that is versatile (think: alfredo chicken pizza, a sauce for pasta, a dip for breadsticks, etc.) and always hits the spot!
Favorite Alfredo Sauce
1 8oz. block cream cheese (I use reduced fat)
1/2 c. butter
1/4 c. + milk
1/2 c. + fresh Parmesan cheese
In a small saucepan, combine cream cheese and butter until melted. Don't be alarmed if the fat separates and makes the mixture look like curdled milk! Add milk and stir until mixture becomes smooth.
Add Parmesan and seasonings and whisk until cheese melts and becomes combined. Add more milk and/or Parmesan until sauce reaches desired flavor and consistency (ie. thicker, thinner, more cheesy, etc.) You really can't go wrong! Season again, as needed. Serve warm over pasta, or as a delicious dip for these breadsticks!
