Fettuccini Alfredo

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cups 1% low-fat milk
  • 1 1/4 cups (5 ounces) grated fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, divided

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups hot cooked fettuccine (8 ounces uncooked pasta)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped Morton & Bassett fresh flat-leaf parsley

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently.

Stir in flour. Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk. Cook 6 minutes or until mixture thickens, stirring constantly. Add 1 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano, cream cheese, and salt, stirring with a whisk until cheeses melt.
