This is a quick and easy Penne Alfredo that will add 15 pounds to your waistline and happiness to your soul. 😉

I looooove how creamy and flavorful this alfredo turned out. None of that weird, bland white sauce going on here. The Knorr Homestyle stock adds loads of flavor and depth to the sauce while the Neufchatel adds a mellow creaminess. I love that you can turn a basic into so many things… as you will see throughout this week.

Is Neufchatel the Same As Cream Cheese?

American Cream Cheese and American Neufchâtel can be used interchangeably.

The biggest difference between the two is that Neufchâtel is made using milk exclusively.

Cream cheese is made with milk and cream.

Can Alfredo Sauce Be Frozen?

Alfredo sauce can be frozen in an air tight container or in a heavy duty freezer bag.

To prevent cream-based sauces from curdling, stir well when reheating frozen sauce.

Will Alfredo Sauce Thicken As It Cools?

Alfredo sauce thickens as it cooks.

Alfredo sauce will also thicken as it cools.
