I was looking at the newsfeed on facebook the other day and came across a recipe that Lark, of LarksCoutryHeart.com shared for her Delicious Alfredo Sauce! Oh My Stars! It looked so good! There was our supper staring at me. Using her wonderful recipe, I started cooking, changing it a little along the way. I ended up making an Alfredo Spread as well as sauce. I hope you like these as much as my boys and hubby did
- 1/2 cup margarine
- 6 oz neufchatel
- 1 1/4 cups grated parmesan cheese
- 3-6 teaspoons minced garlic, I use bottled in water
- 1/2 cup milk or heavy cream, I used milk and it was great
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, if desired
Melt margarine and cream cheese over medium heat.
Add parmesan cheese, a little at the time.
As the cheese mixture thickens, add milk, a little at the time.
Once the cheese has melted take off heat.
This will make 1 1/2 cups spread.
Make as above but add more milk, or heavy cream, a little at the time, to make it the consistency you like.
Serve over fettuccine that has been cooked as directed on the label.
We usually toss the pasta and sauce together and serve it family style.
