  • 1CREAM CHEESE & BUTTER- about room temp
  • 2MILK- measure a cup

    GRATED PARMESAN CHEESE- measure, make sure you use just the regular kind, because if you use the more fancy one it comes out more lumpy
  • 3CREAM CHEESE & BUTTER- cube or cut in bits.
  • 4CREAM CHEESE & BUTTER- place in a sauce pan on low heat.
  • 5CREAM CHEESE, BUTTER, MILK & PARMESAN CHEESE - add the milk when the cream cheese and butter starts to melt and keep stirring for 5 mins. Then add the 3/4 c of parmesan cheese in and stir until smooth.

    ( don't over cook, it will be a little lumpy and thick. If you want a thinner sauce just keep adding a 1/2 c of milk at a time until you get your desired consistency)
