Nate's Alfredo Sauce

Nate made fettuccine alfredo with broccoli for Sunday dinner tonight. It was delicious! I need to let him cook more often!

1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, cut in bits
3/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1-2 cups milk

In a large saucepan combine all four ingredients. Stir constantly until smooth. Add more milk if sauce is too thick.

Toss with pasta (and chicken and broccoli, if desired).


  1. How much pasta does it cover? A whole box?

  2. Oohh...good question. It's about an 8 oz. box, I'd imagine.

  3. OK my kids love this! I used to make an alfredo sauce with butter and cheese and cream, but it was kind of greasy. This has a much better consistency, and I added and extra cup of milk and there was plenty of sauce for a whole box of pasta. I added a little garlic powder and pepper too- thanks Nate!

  4. Yeah, my old alfredo sauce recipe also separated in the fridge, so it was useless for leftovers. This stuff refrigerates and freezes well, too.
