Ingredients
  1. 1/3 cup butter
  2. 6 oz block cream cheese
  3. 2 tsp garlic powder or 2 cloves, diced and mashed
  4. 2 cups milk OR 1 cup milk and 1 cup heavy cream
  5. 6-8 oz grated Parmesan cheese
  6. ¼ tsp black pepper
  7. 1 tsp dried parsley
  8. 2 cups broccoli florets (optional)
  9. ¾-1 lb pasta, we used fettuccine noodles or angel hair pasta is good too
Instructions
  1. 1. Melt butter in a medium, non-stick saucepan over medium heat.
  2. 2. While butter is melting, boil water in a large stock pan for your noodles. Drop broccoli florets, if using, and blanch for about 3 minutes. Remove from boiling water and add noodles to cook. Cook according to the directions on the package.
  3. 2. Add cream cheese and garlic powder to the butter (if using fresh garlic, you’ll need to sauté it in first in a little bit of butter, then add remaining butter), stirring with wire whisk until smooth.
  4. 3. Add milk (and cream if using), a little at a time, whisking to smooth out lumps.
  5. 4. Stir in Parmesan, pepper, and parsley. Add broccoli florets back in.
  6. 5. Remove from heat when sauce reaches desired consistency. Sauce will thicken in about 6-8 minutes, thin with milk if cooked too long.
  7. 6.Toss with hot pasta to serve.
Notes
  1. If you have a kid that likes to dip or a picky eater, consider using the snow sauce as a dipping sauce. Another version, Roast your broccoli florets and serve with the dipping sauce for a healthy appetizer for kids and adults alike.
