The "Best" Alfredo Sauce

1 pint heavy cream

1 cup butter

3 tablespoons cream cheese

1 cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese

2 teaspoons minced garlic

1/3 cup dried parsley flakes

In your pre-heated double boiler combine the butter, heavy cream, and cream cheese. Simmer, stirring frequently, until the butter and cream cheese are melted. Add the Parmesan cheese and garlic. Continue to simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring frequently until smooth and creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste. The longer you simmer this sauce, the better it tastes.

This sauce can be served over fettuccine noodles or another pasta and topped with thinly sliced grilled chicken breasts and steamed vegetables. I prefer a blend of broccoli florets, cauliflower florets, thinly-sliced yellow zucchini, thinly sliced red peppers and thinly sliced young carrots, sauteed or steamed until al dente'.

Regardless of how you use your double boiler, once you become comfortable with it, you will find it is an indispensable kitchen utensil.
