Tonight’s dinner is one of my husband’s favorites and is a pretty frequent request. How can you go wrong with ingredients like butter, cream, garlic, and cheese? That’s correct, you can’t. I throw in frozen broccoli just to make it seem a little healthier. If you decide to do the “healthy” version throw your frozen broccoli into the pasta pot during the last couple minutes. If you were feeling especially daring I suppose you could throw some chicken into the mix as well. I dunno, I’ve never done it.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 2 tablespoons cream cheese
- 1 pint cream

In a medium saucepan, melt butter. Add cream cheese. When the cream cheese is softened, add cream. Season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Simmer 15-20 minutes over low heat, stirring frequently.
Remove from heat and stir in parmesan. Pour over fettucine noodles.
