I hate waiting for a table at Olive Garden, but if you're like me, some days you just have a craving for Italian! Here's a recipe that may help you get over your craving, or at least convince you that waiting in line isn't necessary!
(A word of warning: this is NOT low fat! I only make this occasionally, but it's soooo good!)
1/4 cup butter (1 stick)
1 pint heavy cream
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon garlic powder (more or less for family's taste preferences)
black pepper to taste
Over low heat in a medium sauce pan, combine butter, cream, and cream cheese, whisking occasionally. When completely melted, whisk in garlic powder, Parmesan cheese, and black pepper to taste. When thouroughly combined, simmer over low heat. The longer you simmer, the thicker it gets!
We serve this over pasta with chicken and broccoli or a salad.
