Alfredo Sauce

One of our family's favorite meals is Fettuccine Alfredo. It's one of the only things that everyone can agree on. Today, I'm going to share how I make homemade Alfredo Sauce with you. You can use this sauce for whatever you want. I've used it for Fettuccine Alfredo, dipping bread sticks, and red-and-white mostaccioli. How can I forget over broccoli! It's the only way our daughter will eat it!  I also have another use for this sauce coming up in a future post! I got this basic recipe from a friend, but I've kind of tweaked it a bit to make it my own.

Alfredo Sauce

1/4 cup butter
2 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk (I use 1%)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (get the grated kind, or buy a block and grate it yourself!)

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in flour, and salt until smooth and bubbly. Add milk: cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture comes to a full boil. Boil for 1 minute over low heat. Remove from heat and add cheese, stirring until cheese is melted.
