Ingredients

Sauce

  • 1 8 oz block cream cheese
  • 1 stick salted butter
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Pasta

  • pasta
  • dried oregano for garnish, optional

Instructions

  • Place a skillet over medium-high heat and melt down the stick of butter.
  • While butter is melting, cut the block of cream cheese into chunks, then add to pan.
  • Once the cream cheese is added to the pan, in a separate pot boil water and cook pasta according to package directions.
  • Add the garlic powder, salt, and pepper to the cream cheese and butter mixture and whisk all until mostly smooth.
  • Slowly whisk in the whipping cream and the chicken broth and bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, whisk in the Parmesan cheese. Let simmer for about 5 minutes until the cheese is melted and mixed throughout the sauce (you don't want any clumps).
  • Take off the heat and let sit for about 5 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken.
  • If room, add your cooked pasta noodles directly to the skillet and garnish with crushed dried oregano.

Notes

Serve this pasta sauce with our Italian Turkey Meatballs for a complete meal!
