I started this quest for a reduced fat Alfredo Sauce two months ago. Thanks for all of your wonderful suggestions! I started with a recipe sent in by Nancy. The first batch had too much garlic for my son’s taste. So I adjusted the amount of garlic and the flour/butter ratio to get the right consistency. We tested the sauce in several recipes. We made a Chicken Garlic Alfredo Pizza and Chicken Alfredo. Both were wonderful with the sauce. Next month I will share these recipes with you. This recipe is something I can feel good about feeding to my family.

Melt margarine in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Stir in flour to form a paste. Slowly whisk in milk. Continue whisking until the mixture thickens. This should take about 5 to 7 minutes. You can preheat the milk in the microwave to speed up the process. Add cream cheese, Parmesan and Romano cheese, and pepper. Continue stirring until the cheeses are completely melted.

Freezing Directions:
Cool sauce. Place in freezer bag or rigid container. Seal, label and freeze.

Serving Directions:
Thaw completely. To reheat, place in a sauce pan and heat on medium-low heat until heated through. Do not boil.
