Creamy Garlic Alfredo Sauce

Diana Adcock


Besides pasta, this sauce is great on steamed veggies, a base for white pizza, and a wonderful seafood topper. Then again, I'm all for eating it with a loaf of warm Italian bread like you would fondue. This sauce will make you famous.

  2. Add cream cheese whisking until melted and smooth.
