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.
