Making this sauce in the blender, was something I found on the internet. As I was preparing the original recipe, I found myself changing things as I went along. More heavy cream, more Parmesan cheese, less garlic, heating on top of the stove, and then thickening the sauce. It turned out awesome! A real winner!
