I was searching for an Alfredo Sauce recipe the other day and found this one that was posted in 2011. (That thread is closed to further posting.) I tried it with ingredients I had on hand and it is very good. I used 2% milk, beef broth, and regular cream cheese. I'll make it again with the recipe ingredients listed and serve it with angel hair pasta, broccoli and either chicken or ham loaf. The recipe makes about 2 cups of sauce.

From Marlene Koch's book Eat What You Love:

1 cup low-fat milk

1 1/2 T. cornstarch

1 Cup reduced sodium chicken broth

1/4 cup light cream cheese

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 tsp pepper

1/2 cup grated parm

In med. saucepan, whisk the milk and cornstarch until smooth. Whisk in the broth and place over low heat. Add the cream cheese, garlic powder and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook until the sauce thickens, about 4 minutes. Whisk in the parm cheese and cook 1 to 2 minutes more.

This makes enough for 6 servings of the pasta, chicken and broccoli recipe in her book.

I add a pinch of nutmeg to it; just adds a little something to a white sauce.
