Alfredo Sauce

My son has been talking about Fettuccine Alfredo for about 2 weeks- he suddenly just had a craving apparently!  So the other night I finally made it.  It was simple and yummy... and my taste testers liked it! YAY! 
Here's the recipe:
  • 4 T of butter
  • 4 T of flour
  • 4 cups of warmed milk, cream or both ( I used 2 cups of each)
  • garlic clove minced, to your taste
  • 1-2 cups of Fresh Grated Parmesan, or whatever cheese mixture you like (I also used a little Mozzarella) 
  • Pasta of your choice, I used 1 lb. of Fettuccine
  • salt and pepper to taste
This recipe made 1 quart of sauce, you can easily half it, if you don't want that much.  Melt the butter in a pan and add the flour, stir until it's a paste, then slowly add your warm milk/cream and garlic. Whisk until the lumps are gone and it starts to thicken, then add the cheese and whisk until it's melted and combined. (Your pasta water should be boiling now) cook the pasta, drain and toss with sauce.  Save a little pasta water to add to the sauce if you need to thin it a bit.  I served salad with the Simply Homemade Olive Garden Italian Dressing Recipe and grilled chicken.
