Roasted Garlic Alfredo Sauce, Millie's

Millie Johnson


This is a lovely roasted garlic and parmesan Alfredo sauce. Great served over pasta ! I love the flavor of the roasted garlic in this sauce. Add some pasta and/or meat and a salad and you have a meal ! I add *8 oz. of pasta to this sauce for Pasta Alfredo. (it makes 4 servings of that) Ummm um, it's sooo good !!

*pre cooked weight

I also recommend using the wedges of cheeses, grating yourself and NOT the canned stuff. Makes a world difference !

6When hot, add in the cheeses and pasta water. Reduce the heat and cook till cheese is melted. You can taste and see if you want to add in salt and pepper, but I did not use them as the cheeses are pretty salty as it is. Serve over pasta.
