Fettuccine Alfredo

I love Fettuccine Alfredo. But I have always went through the whole process of the butter, flour, milk blah...blah...blah. When I found this fast and easy recipe on All Recipes I was so happy. I am not a big cream cheese fan so I was hesitant at first but decided to make it anyway. Boy am I glade. This was so good. I tweaked it a bit by substituting fat free and reduced fat ingredient's in place of the full fat and also adding garlic. YUMMMY!!!!

Fettuccine Alfredo

*4 ounces uncooked fettuccine
*1/4 cup Skim milk
*2 Cloves Garlic; Minced
*1/4 cup butter or margarine (I use Light Country Crock)
*3 oz package cream cheese, cubed and softened (I used reduced fat)
*1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (Reduced Fat)
*Pepper (To Taste)


1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
2. In a saucepan, heat Butter and Garlic until fragrant.
3. Add Milk and Cream Cheese and heat until melted.
4. Add Parmesan cheese and pepper. Cook and stir until blended and heated through.
5. Drain pasta, pour pasta into sauce, toss to coat. ENJOY!
