What You Need

Pasta

1 stick of butter

1 clove of minced garlic

1 pint of heavy cream

1 cup of Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons cream cheese

salt and pepper

What to Do

Make Pasta  ( I was cooking the pasta while making the sauce)  :)

In a sauce pan over medium heat – melt butter and add garlic and cook for two minutes.

Add cream and cream cheese and heat till bubbling ( not to the point of a boil)

All mixed but it is missing CHEESE!

Add in Parmesan Cheese and mix until the cheese melts add salt and pepper to taste. I ended up adding about 1/2 teaspoon of pepper ( but that is just me).

Mix some sauce with the pasta ( a little sauce goes a long way ;) ).

Enjoy!

There was so much sauce left over I was able to fill this sauce jar! We had leftovers the next day and it was super yummy.

Final Product :)

How yummy does this look!!!
