Description

This is such a quick a creamy pasta sauce, that you can make in under 15 minutes!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 (8- ounce) package cream cheese
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat melt the butter, cream cheese, and garlic together, stirring very frequently.
  2. Add milk and whisk constantly until smooth and warm.
  3. Add in Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper and stir until thickened, about 5 minutes.
  4. Serve over your favorite pasta.

Notes

Sauce will thicken as it cools, or if simmered too long. If this happens, just add a little more milk.

I used whole milk for this recipe, but you can also use 2%.

This makes enough sauce to coat 1 pound of pasta
