Alfredo Sauce

I usually buy alfredo in a jar, but this was tasty, and easy! Ya'll should give it a try. Also, supposedly you can use it as a pizza sauce too!

2 cups low-fat milk
1/3 cup low fat cream cheese
2 tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp butter
3 garlic cloves
1 cup grated Parmesan or Asiago cheese

Toss the milk, cream cheese, flour, and salt in a blender and process until smooth.
In a sauce pan, melt butter on med-high heat and add garlic and saute for 30 seconds.
Add milk mixture to the pan. Stir constantly for about 3 or 4 minutes or until it just comes to a simmer. Keep stirring and let it cook for a few minutes more until it becomes much thicker.
When it's nice and thick add the cheese, stir it up and then cover immediately. Let stand for at least 10 minutes before using. It will continue to thicken upon standing. Also, if you have leftovers in the fridge, the sauce will thicken almost into a solid. Just re-heat and add a little milk and it will be back to normal again.
