My 3 year old daughter, Amanda, doesn’t like tomato sauce at all. She won’t touch any pasta that has it, ever. She liked the Roasted Red Pepper with Asparagus Sauce I made a couple of weeks ago, but she normally won’t eat cream sauces either. Or creamy soups. To say my kid is picky would be putting it mildly!
Last week she told me she wanted spaghetti and meatballs, which she would eat without sauce, but I didn’t have time to make meatballs or the tomato sauce my husband would want. So, I decided to try a cream sauce again. Sad part, I honestly can’t remember if she ate it or not. I’m way too used to her refusing everything!
Garlic Alfredo Sauce
2 1/2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons butter
about 2 tablespoon chopped parsley ( I didn’t measure)
1 1/3 cup heavy cream
1 1/3 cup milk ( I would have preferred all cream, but only had the 1 1/3 cup)
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons grated romano cheese
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
In a medium-sized pot saute garlic in butter over medium heat until just softened, around 2-3 minutes. Stir in cream, milk, salt, pepper and onion powder and heat through, but don’t allow to come to a boil. Slowly stir in parmesan and romano cheese, then continue to stir until cheese is melted. Serve over thin spaghetti. Yummy!
Side note, I’m looking at the blog and I think it needs some color! Stay tuned for some changes in the coming weeks
