Creamy Alfredo Sauce

This is my favorite alfredo sauce and comes from http://www.genaw.com.  It makes approximately 6 servings and contains around 2 net carbs per serving.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 ounces freshly grated parmesan cheese (1/2 cup)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt, to taste
  • pinch of fresh parsley, minced, optional

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a medium sauce pan or nonstick skillet, heat the cream cheese on medium-low heat, stirring until melted and smooth.
  2. Gradually blend in the cream until smooth.  (I used a whisk)
  3. Stir in the parmesan and seasonings.
  4. Cook and stir over low heat until smooth and creamy, thinning with water until thick but pourable.
  5. Serve over chicken, vegetables or other dishes.

DO NOT FREEZE
