Quick and Easy Light Alfredo Sauce

This is so simple, why buy when you can make it and you know exactly what's going into it?

Printable Recipe

1 Tbsp. Butter
1 1/4 cups half and half
2-3 minced garlic cloves
1/2 tsp dried parsley
3/4 cup (3 oz) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper

In a sauce pan, heat butter and garlic over medium heat until butter is melted. Add remaining ingredients and stir constantly until cheese is melted (2-3 minutes). You're done! See how easy this was? Now toss in some hot cooked pasta and serve under grilled chicken and dinner's ready.

Try this in this fantastic recipe...Chicken-Caesar-Lasagna. If you do, you'll want to double it. Since this sauce is hot and the recipe calls for refrigerated, it cut down on cooking time. I followed the directions making these changes:

1. Add a little of the cheese to all the layers, put the top layer of cheese on before you bake.
2. Increase heat to 400.
3. Bake only 30 minutes, uncover and bake 5 more minutes.

It worked for me and hubby loved it! :)

Well, I will definitely have to make this to go with the lasagna recipe! Could I make it ahead of time and freeze it? That would make things quicker for me.
