Karen's Alfredo Sauce

This was created by Karen Esplin and posted to 24 Hour Menu by her daughter, Krystal! I love it! Thanks ladies for sharing!

This makes a large portion. So, for a smaller family, you may want to split it in half!

1 stick butter
1 1/2 pkg. low fat cream cheese
1-2 tsp crushed garlic, to taste
up to 3 c. fat free half and half
3 oz Parmesan cheese

Make it like a white sauce. Melt butter in saucepan over med/high heat. Add cream cheese, cut in small pieces a little at a time. Add garlic, heat, and stir until smooth. Slowly add cream and Parmesan cheese, constantly stirring. Cook about five minutes.

Even with the low fat cream cheese and fat free half and half, this is an awesome sauce. Serve over whole wheat pasta to alleviate any guilt may feel. :)
