Riley's Alfredo Recipe
1/2 c. butter (1 stick)
2 T. white base soup mix or substitute with cream cheese
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
salt and pepper to taste (around 1/4 tsp. or less of each)
2/3 c. dry grated parmesan cheese
In medium sized pan, melt butter and then add minced garlic. Stir, and then add the white base soup mix or cream cheese. Stir in heavy whipping cream, garlic powder, grated parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Simmer for 15-20 minutes on low heat, stirring consistently. Do not let temperature rise more than 165 degrees or soup will break. If sauce is too thin, you can add more parmesan cheese or slowly dissolve a simple rue. Let stand for 3-5 minutes before serving to let sauce thicken up.
Simple rue (only if needed): Mix 3 T. room temperature softened butter and 3 T. all-purpose flour. Whisk and dissolve into hot sauce to help thicken.
