Alfredo Sauce

This sauce is absolutely to die for.  It is so super yummy without being too heavy as some Alfredo sauces I've tried!  But I got to say the best things about this recipe...Tony (the hubby) LIKES IT!!  He has never been an Alfredo fan and so I hardly ever make it, although I really, really like it.  He told me that it is the best Alfredo he's ever had...WIN FOR ME!!:)  Now I can have Alfredo again and not feel guilty for making something that the hubby doesn't like!!

And...BONUS...it's low fat & super easy to make!!

Alfredo Sauce
recipe from Our Best Bites
We served it with Fettuccine and grilled chicken on top!

2 cups low-fat milk (I used skim...wonderful!)
1/3 cup (3 ounces) low-fat cream cheese
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon butter
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

In a blender, blend the milk, cream cheese, flour, and salt until smooth.  Set aside.

In a large non-stick saucepan, melt the butter on med-high heat and add the garlic.  Saute the garlic for about 30 seconds, stirring constantly.  Add the milk mixture to the pan.  Stir constantly until mixture comes to a simmer.  Continue stirring while simmering until mixture starts to thicken...about 6 minutes. 

Once the sauce has started to thicken, remove from the heat.  Whisk in the Parmesan and immediately cover the pan.  Allow the sauce to stand for at least 10 minutes before using.  It will continue the thicken upon standing.

Serve immediately or refrigerate leftovers for up to 5 days.

We served it over Fettuccine noodles and topped it with grilled chicken.  Also, we used it to dunk our Twisty Breadsticks into...delicious!!
