    1 stick real butter, 1 small block cream cheese, 1 cup whole cream, 1 cup fresh parmesean.
    Melt slowly, covered over very low heat. I usually put all ingredients in pot a couple hours prior to warm to room temp(cept cream), before heating.

    Here's a not-too-caloric/cardiac version (serves 2);

    In a saucepan that will hold 8 oz (dry weight) cooked pasta, melt 1 T of butter; whisk in 2 tsp flour; cook until light golden brown. Slowly whisk in (combined) 7 oz whole milk, 1 oz heavy cream. Add 1 smashed garlic clove, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper, 1/8 tsp fresh grated nutmeg. Simmer lightly until thickened. Remove garlic clove, whisk in 2 oz (1 cup) finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano. Remove from heat and cover as soon as cheese is melted and incorporated.

    Add pasta (about 8 oz, cooked). Taste and correct seasoning as needed. Be prepared to thin with some of the pasta cooking water as the sauce thickens quite quickly. Serve in pre-heated bowls.

    Hey, she didnt say anything about a healthy requirement. ;)
    I have cut back on the butter, used milk instead of cream, as well as LF cream cheese, but it just aint the same.

    I made a mushroom soup the other day with evaporated skim milk. I remembered you could boil it and therefore reduce it. What a waste of good mushrooms. :laugh:

    Well they made yours because it was easiest. They made enough for a minimum of 10 people. Boy oh boy it is filling. Very tasty. Does need garlic for sure and I believe AlaskanC is right on a dash of nutmeg. I would also throw in mushrooms, but I think we're on the verge of carbonara. I think I'll sleep very well tonight.

    Glad to hear it was good! The last time I made it I added some Dizzy Pig Red Eye Express and it was absolutely amazing. Now I'm craving alfredo...
