simple alfredo sauce

Yes, it's butter, cream, and cheese. That's what makes it so good.

1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/3 cup grated cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the cream, stirring well. Cook until cream is simmering, but not boiling. Take some time here. The longer it cooks, the more the naturally thickens. Keep stirring. Add cheeses and cook some more until the cheese is melted and well integrated into the sauce. When you add the salt and pepper, go slowly with the salt because the cheese has some already. You can also add other flavors -- garlic, cajun seasoning -- to your liking. If you don't want flecks in the sauce, use white pepper.

Serves 4.

I have had a craving for good alfredo sauce since having it in DFW in Feb. of 2007.

Good alfredo, not like most everything I have tried to fill the hole with since.

I used your recipe. Thank you for ending my quest. I am full.
