Guitless Alfredo Sauce

Guiltless Alfredo Sauce
from Our Best Bites

2 cups low-fat milk (not skim)
1/3 cup (3 oz) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
2 TB flour
1 tsp salt
1 TB butter
3 garlic cloves
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1. Blend the milk, cream cheese, flour, and salt. Process until smooth and set aside.
2. In a non-stick sauce pan, melt butter on medium-high heat and add garlic. Let the garlic saute for about 30 seconds (it seriously smells delicious!). It should be a bubbly.
3. Then add milk mixture to the pan. Stir constantly for about 3 to 4 minutes on until it comes to a simmer. Keep stirring and let it cook for a few minutes more. It should be much thicken now.
4. When it's nice and thick )it should look as thick as a normal alfredo sauce) remove the pan from the heat. Add the cheese, stir it together, and then cover. Let stand for 10 minutes before using because it will thicken.

*Ok, this alfredo sauce was amazing! I love the garlic flavor, yummy yummy!! There almost was not enough left for the pasta because I had to keep 'tasting it'!
