Beginner cook: Microwave Alfredo Sauce

No, Iím not kidding.

In a glass bowl, put in these ingredients:

1 16 ounce block of cream cheese, cut up into small cubes. If you have 12-16 of them, good enough!

3 ounces (3/4) of a stick of unsalted butter, cut into pats or cubes. DO NOT USE MARGARINE. It is too greasy for this dish.

1/2 cup shredded fresh Parmesan. Or the same amount of the shaky stuff in the jar.

1/3-1/2 cup heavy cream. Start with 1/3. See the directions for when to use more.

1 TB garlic powder.

1/2 teaspoon white pepper.

Put the bowl in the microwave and run it in high for 2 minutes. Take it out and whisk or stir the ingredients together to combine them. Theyíll still be lumpy. Donít panic. Put it back in the microwave and run it another minute or two, stirring again to combine everything. At this point, if you think itís too thick or gooey, stir in more cream. Run it one more minute. Should be a smooth sauce after a stir, but if it isnít, repeat the 1 minute-stir step until itís smooth.

Serve over fettuccine.

No, this is not healthy. Not in the least. But it is good and easy to make, which is good enough.

1. That's a perfectly good Alfredo sauce

I like the 'with cream' variety like this. My wife prefers the rather sparse 'olive oil/parmesan/starch water' variety.

Check this out, if you're looking for some more variety:

I've tried a few of them myself. Microwave idlis are really a thing.
