Wonderful Wednesday Wrecipes

Em came up with today’s entry. I didn’t think to take pictures-sorry!

Pasta with Alfredo Sauce

Makes 4-servings (realistically- 3 adult portions or 2 with leftovers)

  • 8 oz. dry pasta
  • 4 oz. cream cheese (either brick or spreadable, but not whipped)
  • ½ to 2/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 6 TBSP butter (what can I say- heart-attack on a plate)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder, or a minced whole clove of fresh garlic
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg

Boil salted water for pasta; when you toss pasta in, begin sauce.

In a medium sauce pan over low heat, stir all ingredients except nutmeg until combined and cheeses are melted.

Keep warm over low heat until pasta is ready. Drain pasta, reserving ¼ cup of cooking liquid.

Pour pasta into a serving bowl, and add alfredo sauce. Toss to combine well, adding pasta cooking water as necessary to thin sauce. Stir in the nutmeg and serve hot.
