The Easiest Alfredo Sauce! (Microwave)

Print PrintShare with Friends


Taken from "Micro Ways" cookbook by Norene Gilletz, I made this recently, it is so easy to make and tastes DELICIOUS! This sauce is wonderful over fettucine, spaghetti or tortellini. There is enough sauce to combine with 1 pound of noodles, if you are doubling this recipe, make it separately not in the same pyrex cup. Follow microwave times and you will have just the best alfredo sauce, once you make this you will be making it all the time!
