Alfredo Sauce

This photo does not do justice to this recipe. It is so easy and so simple. I should have taken the time to put the sauce in another contain, but being a lazy I thought it would look okay in the pot. Ugh, not to so much. This recipe is not low calorie or low fat, but it is delicious. With a little portion control it is doable and it is probably better for you than a store bought sauce that contains high fructose corn syrup.

2 tablespoons butter
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the cream, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat. With the mixture at a gentle boil, cook for 3-5 minutes or until it begins to thicken, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and add the cheese, stirring until melted.
  2. Serve over your favorite pasta and enjoy!
