Homemade Alfredo Sauce

One of my favorite things to eat is Alfredo Pasta!  When we lived in South Alabama there was a locally owned place called Pintoli’s that had the best!  And now we frequent a place called Roman Rooster, and their pasta could easily rival our old place. (And not to mention, their pizza is the best I’ve ever had! But I digress…) 
But when I want to cook pasta at home, I use the alfredo sauce recipe that I’m sharing with you today.  I found this recipe nearly a year ago over at Amy’s Finer Things. This goes great with all kinds of pasta and meat.  We usually do Chicken Fettucini Alfredo, but over the weekend I served the sauce with egg noodles and tiny shrimp.  It was excellent!

Recipe for Homemade Alfredo Sauce:
 1/2 c. butter (1 stick)
 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
 2 tsp. garlic powder
 2 cups Half and Half
 6 oz. grated Parmesan cheese (shredded, not powder)
 pepper to taste
basil and/or parmesan for serving (optional)
Directions:  Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add cream cheese and garlic powder. Stir together until smooth.  Add half and half, cheese, and pepper. Stir until combined and smooth. If the sauce is thicker than you like, thin with a little milk. Serve over your favorite pasta, and season as desired.

I picked Alfredos(I think that was the name of it) It was an Italian restaurant owned by the chef from Italy that created Fettuccine Alfredo. When I realized that , I ordered Fettuccine Alfredo and it was marvelous!
