Last year I had a bit of a dilemma. I had a lot of mozzarella and parmesean cheese to use and wanted to make something different... so I decided to try my hand at making an Alfredo sauce from scratch. Every recipe I looked at required cream cheese and I just didn't want to use that (not to mention I just didn't have any on hand) So I experimented and this is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy this as much as my husband and I did.
