Alfredo Sauce

This sauce is so easy and delicious. I think it tastes similar to Olive Garden's Alfredo Sauce. Thanks Our Best Bites for another Delicious Recipe

2 C low-fat milk (not skim)
1/3 C (3 oz) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
2 T flour
1 t salt
1 T butter
3 garlic cloves
1 C grated Parmesan cheese

Toss the milk, cream cheese, flour, and salt in a blender. Process until smooth and set aside. In a non-stick sauce pan, melt butter on med-high heat and add garlic. Let the garlic saute for about 30 seconds, you don't want to burn it.

Then add milk mixture to the pan. Stir constantly for about 3 minutes or until it just barely comes to a simmer. Keep stirring and let it cook for about 2 minutes more. It should be much thicker now. You can do a spoon test to check. When you run your finger over the back of a spoon it should hold the line firmly.
