Best Alfredo Sauce

To be completely honest, I am OBSESSED with alfredo. I don't care if it's on pasta, pizza, or on my finger. I love it! Anyway, after trying several disappointing alfredo recipes that never seem to turn out just right, I finally found one that is flawless every time. It's creamy, thickens like it should and tastes great. Try it out! You won't be disappointed.

Alfredo
2 Tbsp. butter
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
3 cups half-and-half
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. seasoning of your choice, (Italian, Sicilian, etc.)

1. Melt butter in medium pot over low heat. Add garlic; cook, stirring, 30 seconds. Stir in flour. Gradually whisk in half-and-half until smooth.
2. Bring to boil, whisking. {This is the key: Boil and Whisk} Cook, whisking, until beginning to thicken, 2-3 minutes. Stir in Parmesan, salt, seasoning and pepper.

Serve with 12 oz. of pasta or half the recipe to use for pizza sauce.
