This is my version of Alfredo...I know..I know.. it's not a health food recipe. I'm sure the calories can be reduced somewhere but I can't guarantee it will taste as good! Besides this is worth that extra mile when you run tomorrow!
1 qt heavy whipping cream
1 stick of butter (no substitutes)
1 tsp of garlic powder
¼ tsp salt/ ¼ tsp black pepper, or to taste
1 cup parmesan cheese grated
1 tsp of dried basil
1 tsp of Italian seasonings
1 can of artichoke hearts in water, chopped (not marinated)
Melt the butter in a large skillet
Add heavy cream & garlic powder
Heat to a simmer & add seasonings
Stir in cheese. You might need to whisk it in to prevent lumps. Stir in chopped artichokes.
Simmer till thickened. (about 15 min)
Pour over your favorite pasta or use as a dip for bread sticks!
