Easy Alfredo

This is my favorite recipe for Alfredo Sauce. It's quick and simple and doesn't require special items. Make an extra batch because it stores in the fridge for a week and the freezer for up to 3 months. We use it on pasta and on our yummy chicken pizza.

Homemade Alfredo Sauce

1 1/4 cups whipping cream or half and half
1 cup chicken broth
1 TBS cornstarch
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 TBS olive oil
2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

In a meduim bowl stir together cream, broth, cornstarch, pepper, and nutmeg. (set aside) In medium saucepan heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic. Cook and stir for 30 seconds. Add broth mixture. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Stir in Cheese. (Makes 2 1/2 cups)
