Total Time 15 minutes


  • 1/2 cup cream cheese Go for full-fat cream cheese here. The light cream cheese will separate in your sauce and it's just gross!
  • 1 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 Tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper I like lots of pepper in this! Add more when you serve it!
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg


  1. Blend everything together in the blender until combined.

  2. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly, then reduce the heat to low until you're ready to serve. 

Recipe Notes

The sauce will thicken as it cools, so even if it seems a little thin, it will coat your pasta nicely as it cools down.
I like to serve it with linguine (this sauce will be enough for a 500 gram package) and top it with extra parm and lots of fresh parsley for serving.
