What we're eating - Creamy Macaroni

It's always hard to get the girls to try something new but I am always on a search for something new and different to eat. I finally found a wonderful Alfredo sauce recipe and Amelia LOVES it. It's quick, easy and so good. But what isn't good when it includes butter, cream cheese and half & half?

1/2 cup butter
1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese
1 cup half and half
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon garlic powder
pepper, to taste

1. In a medium saucepan, melt butter.

2. Once butter is almost melted, add the package of cream cheese. It's easiest to cut it into 4 pieces so that it melts quicker.

3. Once butter and cream cheese are mixed well together, add the cup of half and half, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and then shake pepper on top. Stir all together until well mixed.

5. DONE! Pour over your favorite pasta, we use macaroni noodles.
