This is an amazing alfredo sauce, and it is so EASY to make! I had no idea it could be so easy.
Pasta is a great way to feed a family economically. There are decent jarred Alfredo sauces out there, but nothing compares to one made from scratch. I have tried numerous recipes, and I eventually ended up combining what I liked from some of them and then modifying them in my own way to my liking. This was by far my favorite and a favorite among the troops, and it still is to this day!

For this recipe you will need:
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3 cloves minced garlic (sometimes I even use more!)
- 1/3 cup flour
- 4 cups half and half
- 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
Cook whole box of pasta. Meanwhile….melt butter, throw in minced garlic and cook down for a minute or two. Add flour and allow to come together and thicken and brown just a bit.
Next, add half and half and let cook till it thickens, about 12 minutes. Add salt and pepper.
Remove from heat and add parmesan cheese. I also throw some grilled chicken in with the sauce at this point at times. Mix into pasta. Yum-O!
