Easy (and versatile) Alfredo Sauce

This is my great alfredo sauce. I made this recipe many a year ago.  It is so versatile. And so fool-proof and easy. The light cream cheese is fine, but not the fat-free. Fat free cream cheese is not meant to be heated.  And I know, there’s no picture. But I accidentally deleted it and I didn’t want to hold it against you.

EASY (& VERSATILE!) ALFREDO SAUCE

6 oz cream cheese (low fat neufatchel is fine)
1/4 cup butter
1 cup milk
3/4 cup grated or shredded parmesan (fresh shredded is best)

Combine all in saucepan. Whisk over medium to medium-high heat until smooth and hot.  Serve over fettucine, penne, whatever your heart fancies!
And if you garnish with a little fresh chopped parsley, I’ll love you all the more for it.

NOW…here comes the VERSATILE part of it…..
If you want a richer sauce- you can do a full 8 oz cream cheese
If you want a lighter sauce, you can do 1 1/2 cups milk, no butter, and only 4 oz cream cheese
Want an alfredo florentine sauce?  Add a cup of chopped spinach (thawed frozen is fine)
How about Broccoli Alfredo? Add a cup or 2 of cooked chopped broccoli
Or maybe a pizza with alfredo sauce instead of pizza sauce? Just cook it a little longer to make it thicker.
I told you-it’s versatile!
