Bring just to a simmer and let thicken while whisking continuously.   It is finished when the sauce is thick and bubbly.

Serve immediately over pasta, rice, chicken or fish.



  Add to any dish: veggies, pasta, chicken, etc.

I’ve added it to hamburger and macaroni for my own Hamburger Helper.

Makes great Alfredo with Italian Seasonings on Farfalle pasta yum!

I've also melted in a bag of shredded cheddar cheese and made my own  macaroni and cheese, it was terrific.
