  • 1/2 c. salted butter (1 stick) yes, real butter
  • 1 1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1 1/4 c. grated Parmesan Cheese I use Kraft or Sargento. You can use the stuff with the green lid, too, but the sauce will be grainy.
  • 1 dash salt, pepper and garlic powder to liking


  • Melt your butter and whipping cream on medium low heat in a saucepan and whisk until the mixture comes to a rolling boil.
  • Add the parmesan cheese to the pan.
  • Stir constantly with a whisk for 10 minutes or so, until the cheese has melted.
  • Remove from heat and let stand to thicken for about three to five minutes (it will be runny at first but it will thicken).
  • Pour over cooked pasta and toss.
  • Add chicken or shrimp on top & enjoy!
