Garlic Chicken Alfredo

This dish has fit into my dinner rotation so many times now that I must share it!  Chicken pasta is my favorite, and this Alfredo sauce is delicious.  Much better than if you were to just open up a jar, and almost as easy.

2 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic pressed through a garlic press
4 ounces cream cheese softened
1 cup milk(I use 1%)
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt(more if needed)
*Makes about 2 cups of Sauce
Additional Ingredients:
1 cup Diced Chicken
1/2 cup frozen peas

In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat.
Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. 
Add cream cheese, whisk until mixture is smooth(about 2-3 minutes). You should have a smooth, creamy paste.
Add milk gradually, whisking quickly and constantly until incorporated into the sauce.
Stir in Parmesan cheese, pepper and salt. Stir until cheese is melted and the sauce is desired consistency.
Add your chicken and peas if desired.
Serve immediately over cooked pasta.

Sometimes I add peas to this dish which makes for a great meal for my toddler, and gets my husband to eat more vegetables as well!  Just add about 1/2 cup of frozen peas to the pasta about 2 minutes before you drain it.  I usually serve this with KellyAnne's Bread Sticks.  If you haven't tried them yet, you really should!
