Easy Freezer Alfredo Sauce

Here is another one of my favorite recipes to make ahead. I usually make a lot and freeze it in meal size portions. It's really easy for the (older) kids to warm up. And having more homemade foods on hand and ready to eat, really helps to cut back on junk foods and eating out.

This is a great stand-by for a quick dinner. It's really good with garlic powder added... a little or a lot, just add to taste. I found this recipe on the internet years ago and it has become a favorite. I can't remember where or I would give credit for it... it is good.

Freezer Alfredo Sauce

8 ounces cream cheese
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup milk
angel hair pasta
diced chicken breast
Sticky Chicken spice (see recipe)

Heat first 3 ingredients until smooth. Add milk - stir until smooth. If sauce is too thick add more milk until desired consistency.

We like to serve this over angel hair pasta. Sometimes plain and sometimes with broccoli or diced chicken or both. It is especially good if you put 'Sticky Chicken' spice on the chicken and broil it before adding to the pasta.

NOTES: This freezes very well. When reheating on stove top stir often or it will burn. You may need to add milk to thin it out a bit after being frozen. Reheating in the microwave works great also.

Pretty easy, huh? I hope you like it.

Happy Cooking!
