WOE: Stay below 20 carbs per day
Start Date: 7/12/16 for yet another time
Alfredo sauce

1 oz mascarpone
1 T butter
1 T good grated parmesan

Nuke 30 seconds, stir well. Another 30, stir well, the butter will try to seperate. May even need another 30, stir well some more. Of course I added minced garlic. 1 serving. Not sure if all mascarpone and parm is the same, but 1 carb total for this single batch.

Sounds easy and delicious. I'll probably have to sub cream cheese for the mascarpone.

Thanks for posting!

Stats: Low carb for blood sugar control
You can also make it with heavy whipping cream

1/4 cup butter
1 cup heavy cream
1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese

Put all ingredients in a saucepan over medium low heat. Stir until the cheese is all melted and the sauce is smooth. It will thicken more as it sets.

This is the real deal, Sharon. A genuine Alfredo is made of nothing more than these three ingredients. Adding things like garlic, onions and /or spices is an American invention. THIS is perfection!
