Easy Freezer Alfredo Sauce!

This is the BEST (and easiest) alfredo sauce I've ever made! Oh, and I added fresh basil from our garden and some chicken when cooking it initially. When I was ready to make it for dinner, I defrosted it in the microwave, added fresh broccoli to it, popped it in the crock pot and cooked on low all afternoon. I poured it over penne later that night and it was a complete "hit" in our house! I also add it to pizza crust (with cheese, of course) for a homemade chicken alfredo pizza! Mmm! It freezes wonderfully, so I always make double! It was SOOOOO good & easy. It even reheated well in the microwave on leftover night! Enjoy!

Freezer Alfredo Sauce

1 package cream cheese -- 8 oz
3/4 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup butter
1 cup milk
Basil to taste
finely chopped garlic or garlic powder to taste
Dash or two of nutmeg
Mix cream cheese, parmesan cheese, and margarine, heating slowly, stirring frequently until smooth. Add all spices and milk to thin until desired consistency for your pasta. Will freeze for months in a sealed freezer bag!

I made this for dinner last night and the whole family LOVED it! It is the closest thing I've ever had to Olive Garden Alfredo (which I haven't had in years). So good! The family is looking forward to it again. The only complaint I had was that I only made half a batch. I'll make a full one next time.

Thank you so much! I tripled this but added less milk and froze it with shreddded chicken in it to make 3 dinners for after our newest baby is born. Thank you so much, I didn't know you could freeze alfredo sauce and I love the idea of cooking it in a crockpot!

Baby is here and we used the first of these freezer meals tonight.. heating just as you said and adding a little extra milk. Boiled the noodles and added frozen veggies at the end of the noodle boiling time. Easy and so much better than having to do this from the beginning with a 4 day old and 4 more kids! Thanks!!
