Everyday Mom's Meals: Thanks Cuz

Thanks Cuz

Since I love to cook so much, I am always swapping recipes and ideas w/ other home cooks. And one of the people I do this w/ the most is my cousin Tricia. She is also a wife and stay at home mom (to an adorable 2 1/2 year old!) and enjoys cooking as much as I do. It makes sense though since we are both the grandchildren, and products, of the original home cook--Martha Shartle--our Grammy! Tricia sent me this recipe a couple months ago and I was SO excited to try it. I used to make a recipe that I used bottled sauce for and it was one of our favorite meals. But when I was pregnant w/ Alex, and was over come w/ morning sickness 24/7, the sauce made me so sick that I couldn't even stomach the smell of it any more. So I made this and it was a huge hit and I will never buy bottled sauce again! Thanks Trish--Love you bunches and bunches!

Alfredo Sauce
1/2 cup butter
2 cloves garlic minced
2 cups heavy cream
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup Parmesan
3/4 cup Mozzarella

Melt butter in sauce pan over medium-low heat. Add garlic, cream and pepper. Bring to a simmer stirring often. Add Parmesan and stir until well blended. Simmer 8-10 minutes until thick. Add Mozzarella and STIR FREQUENTLY until blended and smooth. Serve w/ favorite pasta.
