As you can see there are lots of choices. Grab your favorite and use it to whip up a batch of my Easy Weeknight Pasta Alfredo. Any of the flavors with the exception of Strawberry will be amazing in this recipe.
I used a tub of Arla Skyr to whip up my Alfredo sauce.
Arla Skyr Cream Cheese starts with the classic Arla cream cheese recipe and introduces skyr, an Icelandic-style yogurt, into the mix, resulting in a great-tasting Icelandic cream cheese spread that’s naturally higher in protein and lower in sugar and fat than their Original Cream Cheese. It adds a great flavor to my pasta dish and will be perfect in any of your favorite recipes.
- ½ cup butter
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 7 oz Arla Cream Cheese
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup heavy cream or half & half
- 6 oz parmesan cheese (fresh grated)
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- parsley, if desired
- cooked pasta
- Melt the butter in a medium saucepan and add garlic over low heat.
- Saute for one minute and stir in the Arla Cream Cheese, milk and cream.
- Whisk until smooth.
- Increase heat to medium high and simmer for 5 - 7 minutes, whisking often.
- Add the parmesan cheese and pepper and stir to combine.
- Once the cheese has melted, toss with pasta and top with parsley.
- Serve warm.
Notice that my recipe only requires a few ingredients and is ready in about 15 minutes. This is one of my go-to meals on a busy week. I probably make it at least a couple of times per month. The recipe I am sharing today is the basic option but you can add protein or your favorite veggie if you want. Sometimes I add chicken, bacon or shrimp to change it up a bit. Other times I will add peas, broccoli or kale to add a bit of color and get a few veggies in my guys!
