Fettucini Alfredo for dinner tonight!

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

It's been a while since I have posted. I have been SO busy lately! Tonight my plan is to go home, do some cleaning, and cook a nice dinner for hubby and I. Here's what's on the menu (modified slightly from allrecipes.com).

Unfortunately blogger isn't letting me upload any pics of this fabulous recipe, but if you click the link above it will take you directly to the recipe & pics.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

  • 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


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.

I have a huge stockpile of pasta, cream cheese, and milk because of all of the recent Publix deals so this will be a perfect budget dinner for us. I make it all of the time, and it's definitely one of our favorites!
