Cousin Amanda's Alfredo

Alfredo is one of my all time favorite sauces. This stuff is TO DIE FOR!!! I'm so tickled to have family to share recipes with now. Next week I'll be trying her MIL's Tacos el Pastor. Yum!

2 Tbs unsalted butter
1 Tbs minced garlic (or 2-3 cloves minced)
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1/2 c milk
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
black pepper
1 box angel hair pasta (or other pasta)

(she also suggested parsley)

On low heat melt butter and add garlic, cook for about a minute to infuse the butter w/the garlic flavor, then add cream, milk and parm cheese with some black pepper and salt. Turn heat up to med-low until starting to bubble, add slurry (slurry=1 Tbs cornstarch for every 2 cups liquid, which a pint is 2 cups, so I mixed in cornstarch that was combined with a few Tbs water to make a paste), whisk until incorporated, continue to cook on med-low while cooking noodles, then add chicken and spinach and heat on med until heated through and starting to bubble again.

Thanks, Amanda!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
