Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If using canned Parmesan cheese (green can), you need to use cream in the sauce. If you use regular milk, the Parmesan will clump together into one piece.

I knew I was sticking my neck out tonight when I made this, knowing Hubs doesn’t like Alfredo sauce. “You know,” he said while we were eating supper, “I usually don’t like Alfredo sauce, but I like THIS.” How ‘bout that. Must have been because I prettied it up with a sprinkle of chopped fresh parsley. Note: Be sure to reserve some of the pasta cooking water. Add it to the finished pasta as necessary to keep the sauce creamy.

This also works with half-n-half or evaporated milk, if you don't have whipping cream on hand. I like to saute the garlic in the butter before making the sauce for the alfredo. This is one of our favorite pasta dishes--great base for chicken/shrimp/sausage alfredo.
