Not Your Alfredo Sauce

Chicken alfredo with penne pasta, topped with asiago cheese.

Chicken alfredo with penne pasta, topped with asiago cheese.

Total time:  15 minutes, plus pasta cook time.

This is one of those that I normally guess and approximate, depending on my mood. These measurements are purely guesses, as I never measure, just dump. We only eat sharp cheddar in our house, too. You can substitute it for whatever cheese you want.

1 tablespoon of minced garlic (about 3 cloves)
1-2 tablespoons of butter
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup extra sharp white cheddar cheese
4 ounces of cream cheese (about half the box)
black pepper to taste

Serves two.

In a medium saucepan on medium-low heat, melt butter completely.  Add garlic, milk, and cream, stirring constantly until incorporated.  Add cheeses and stir constantly until melted completely.

Above with penne pasta, chicken, and asiago cheese.
Below with gnocchi and no sharp cheddar.
