Yummy in my tummy alfredo sauce

So when I was home for the 4th of July, we went to the farmer’s market and bought some homemade ravioli stuffed with crab…and then they just sat in the freezer.  I was trying to decide whether to make them with a sauce or not and what kind of sauce to make.  Finally I settled on alfredo (good choice!).  I found a recipe online and modified it a bit and it was DELICIOUS!

1/2 c margarine
2 cloves garlic, minced
8oz low fat cream cheese
4 oz Parmesan cheese
1 1/3 c skim milk
1/4 t black pepper
1/2 t oregano
1/4 t nutmeg

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.  Add the garlic in while the butter’s melting so it can cook a bit.

Add in the cream cheese and stir with a whisk until smooth.  Add in the Parmesan, keep whisking!

Slowly add in the milk, again until smooth.  Add in the spices.  You can let this simmer a bit and it will thicken.  Also thickens when it cools.


It did reheat kind of strangely, but it still tasted delicious!  I’ll definitely be making this one again!
