Quick and easy creamy, cheesy Alfredo with cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, butter, milk and seasonings.


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, cubed

  • 3 teaspoons freshly minced garlic
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups grated Parmesan cheese

  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add minced garlic and saute (stirring constantly) until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  2. Add cream cheese cubes and Italian seasoning. Stir with a whisk to smooth out large lumps. Slowly pour in milk, about 1/4 cup at a time, while continuing to whisk.
