Easy Fettuccine Alfredo

(serves 6 to 8)

1 package (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, cubed
3/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
1 stick margarine, cubed
1/2 cup 2% milk
8 oz. fettuccine, cooked and drained
Dried chopped parsley
Vegetable oil
Salt


If desired:
4 to 6 slices of crispy bacon, crumbled
or 1/2 pound of mild sausage, 1/2" slices


Fill large pot with water and bring to boil. Add a tablespoon of salt and a couple of table spoons of vegetable oil to boiling water. Add fettuccine, stirring to avoid sticking. Cook to desired tenderness. Drain off water.

While water is boiling and fettuccine is cooking, combine cream cheese cubes, Parmesan cheese, margarine and milk in large saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly until cheese and butter melts and mixture is smooth and creamy. Add a little more milk if mixture is too thick.

Add cream sauce to drained fettuccine and toss lightly to coat pasta. Serve with dusting of parsley for color.

Option: add crumbled bacon while tossing sauce and pasta.

Option: slice sausage into 1/2" pieces and saute in skillet with some oil. Drain. Add sausage while tossing sauce and pasta.
