Alfredo Sauce

Oh my, this is yummy, but so not good for you.  My family loves chicken and broccoli alfredo, but I don't use this recipe very often.  I usually use the Knorr alfredo sauce mix packet that you can buy for like $1.50, and I make that with skim milk so it is much healthier.  But I wanted to share this recipe, because if you love alfredo, you will love this. And, it is so darn easy. It could be a super last minute meal if you just cooked up some pasta and made the sauce.  I double this recipe when I make it for my family of 6, and we have some left over.
P.S.  I have made this using canned evaporated milk instead of cream to cut down on some of the calories, and it was great.

Alfredo Sauce

1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. heavy cream
3/4 c. Parmesan cheese
1/2 t. salt (optional, I don't use this)
Dash of pepper

Heat butter and cream on low heat in a sauce pan until butter is melted. Stir in cheese, salt, and pepper. Continue stirring until thickened. Serve with about 8oz of cooked pasta.
