Guiltless Alfredo Sauce

2 cups low-fat milk
1/3 cup (3 oz) low-fat cream cheese
2-3 TBS flour
1 tsp. salt
1 TBS butter
3 cloves garlic
1 cup grated parmesan cheese

1.  Place milk, cream cheese, flour, and salt in a blender and blend until smooth.

2.  In a non-stick saucepan, melt butter on medium high heat and then add garlic.  Let the garlic saute for about 30 seconds.

3.  Add milk mixture to the pan with butter and garlic.  Stir constantly until it just comes to a simmer (3 or 4 minutes).  Keep stirring and let it cook for a few more minutes until it is thickened.  Remove from heat.

4.  Add cheese.  Stir and then cover immediately.  Let stand for at least 10 minutes.  It will continue to thicken while standing.  Season with more salt if desired.

Serve over noodles with chicken or as a pizza sauce, etc.
