Creamy Parmesan Sauce
Try this sauce over a variety of vegetables. It has a wonderful cheesy flavor.—Maria Bacher, Westminster, South Carolina
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 10 min.
- 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, cubed
- 3/4 cup whole milk
- 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Editor's Note: Shredded Parmesan cheese will give the sauce a creamier texture than grated Parmesan.
