EASY ALFREDO SAUCE RECIPE
homemade unsalted butter
1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup Romano cheese, grated
pinch of nutmeg
1 cup half-and-half
1 cup milk
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp kosher salt or to taste
Melt butter in a heavy skillet on low and add the cream cheese and minced garlic; whisking while it is melting. Add the half-and-half and milk 1/2 cup at a time and whisk well after each addition.
