  • 1/2 c. butter
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 3/4 c. Parmesan cheese
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp salt


  1. In a saucepan, melt butter and cream cheese.
  2. Add garlic powder, salt, and cheese (mixture will be lumpy - not smooth, but keep going!).

  3. Slowly pour in heavy whipping cream.
  4. Continue to stir until mixture is heated through.
  5. Sauce will be thin (this is normal!)
  6. Sauce will thicken once it's cooled and on your noodles.
  7. *You CAN keep on low and stir occasionally to help sauce thicken - but watch it, it can burn!
