Alfredo Sauce with Cream Cheese
2 tbsp butter
3 - 4 tbsp cream cheese (light)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 cup milk
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
ground black pepper to taste
Melt butter in a medium, non-stick saucepan over medium heat. Add cream cheese and garlic powder, stirring with wire whisk until smooth. Add milk, a little at a time, whisking to smooth out lumps. Stir in Parmesan and pepper. Remove from heat when sauce reaches desired consistency. Sauce will thicken and you can thin it with milk if it becomes too thick. Toss with hot pasta to serve.
