{fettuccine alfredo}

I have searched high and low for the perfect Alfredo recipe, and I think I've finally found it. This is a favorite dish, and is requested so often, that I really needed to find one that we all loved. Most of the ones I tried didn't maintain that really creamy texture, and had a tendency to separate easily. The cream cheese in this recipe cures that, and gives it a rich flavor. This is so, so good--it won't last long!


1/2 c. butter
8 oz. cream cheese
3/4 c.- 1 c. milk (depends on how thick you want it)
1 c. Parmesan cheese (not in the can)

Melt the butter, and then using a whisk, add the cream cheese and stir until it's melted. Whisk in the milk, stir in the cheese, then bring to a low boil while stirring often. Serve over fettuccine, or favorite pasta (we like farfalle).
