Alfredo Sauce

I'm not a huge spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce person... I don't like how overpowering the taste can be, so a lot of the time I will use just butter and parmesan on my spaghetti or maybe alfredo sauce. It is so rich and delicious and when I saw this recipe on one of the blogs I love checking out I wanted to try it. It was VERY rich and pretty good. I might keep searching for one that I like better, but this one was pretty tasty!

Alfredo Sauce
(reciep found at

1 cube butter
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese
1 cup half and half
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
ground pepper to taste

In a medium saucepan, melt butter on stove. Add cream cheese and stir together until cream cheese is melted and they are mixed well. When they are mixed together, add half and half, parmesan, garlic powder and pepper. Stir together until it's all combined. Take off heat and let sit for a few minutes to thicken up. Serve over your favorite pasta with some garlic bread! :) Yum!!

* Now I wasn't sure what a cube of butter was and I wasn't thinking too clearly, so I just threw in a whole stick of butter! :) I am thinking a chunk of it would have been more what she was talking about!! It still tasted delish, but it might not have been as rich tasting...
