BASICS: Alfredo Sauce

One thing I love is Alfredo sauce - or "white sauce" as my kids call it. It's so easy to make!!
Basic Alfredo Sauce
4 tablespoons butter
1 clove garlic, minced*
2 T flour
2 c heavy cream
1/2 c half and half
Salt
Pepper

Melt the butter in medium sauce pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for about 1 minute - be careful not to cook it for too long – it will get bitter. Add the flour and whisk until smooth. Gradually add the heavy cream and half and half whisking constantly. Once incorporated, whisk less frequently. It will start to thicken and bubble. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve over your fav pasta – or on top of your pizza dough.

*I use the minced garlic in a jar. The brand I get says ½ tsp = 1 clove.
