Inspiration: Guiltless Alfredo Sauce
|Cooking the alfredo sauce|
I actually make this recipe pretty much as written, which is really surprising because I like to use a recipe as inspiration rather than a written rule. But of course some slight variations happen -- I used almond milk rather than cow milk and replaced one ounce of the cream cheese with a wedge of Laughing Cow light garlic & herb spread to add more flavor.
It helps to use an immersion/stick blender to make the sauce, put your ingredients in a glass measuring cup or the mixing beaker that comes with the blender and whiz it up. Easier to clean than a full-size blender.

And I added a package of frozen baby vegetable blend with sauce, the sort that you cook in the microwave. Throw everything into the sauce pan and give it a toss to coat. So delicious!
