Anybody can make this easy alfredo sauce. Its a really quick and easy way to make alfredo. Add your favorite pasta, veggies and/or chicken or shrimp. I also serve this with a crusty bread, fresh green salad and good white wine. Its child friendly for those children that like to help cook. My 12 year old son makes this sauce for me while I grill up chicken.
