This is a great Alfredo Sauce. It is so quick and easy and the texture always turns out right. The cream cheese in this gives it the perfect texture. I also like it because most alfredos call for cream. I don’t usually keep cream on hand but I do usually have cream cheese on hand to use in desserts and frostings.
I use this as a side dish served with roast, chicken, or pork steaks. It also makes a good main dish if you add ham or chicken.
I know this is not the healthiest but it is a nice quick meal.

How to Make Alfredo Sauce


  1. 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.
