Pasta sauces can be expensive to buy, but there's really no reason for buying pasta sauces. They are so easy to make. This is a recipe for Alfredo sauce. We eat it over fettuccine, and sometimes we mix in some coarsely chopped broccoli tops.
**Just to warn you, my family has always called this "heart attack on a plate" so you probably shouldn't have it once a week or more.**
1 stick (1/2 c.) butter
2/3 - 1 c. Parmesan cheese
1/2 c. cream (or milk, I've even used skim for this, and it's a little healthier)
1 egg, beaten
ground pepper to taste
1. Melt the butter over medium heat.
2. Add Parmesan to melted butter while stirring with a whisk.
3. Turn heat to low, and stir in milk.
4. Stir in egg and add pepper.
That's it! This makes enough for about one pound of fettuccine. If you only have a couple mouths to feed like I do, I suggest making a whole batch and saving out half of it in a mason jar or something for next time. It'll hold in the fridge for two or three weeks.
