5CREAM CHEESE, BUTTER, MILK & PARMESAN CHEESE - add the milk when the cream cheese and butter starts to melt and keep stirring for 5 mins. Then add the 3/4 c of parmesan cheese in and stir until smooth.

( don't over cook, it will be a little lumpy and thick. If you want a thinner sauce just keep adding a 1/2 c of milk at a time until you get your desired consistency)
