    My kids loved it, I thought it needed more flavor and more salt.
    Super easy and fast recipe! The only thing is that I had to add a little bit more of heavy cream because it was too cheesy, but other than that this sauce was super easy and delicious! This recipe will make you never want get store bought sauce!

    Quick and easy! Basic and simple, but yummy! My boyfriend made it for dinner last night (pregnancy craving satiated). We didn’t have the full amount of shredded parmesan and are at 6500 feet above sea level, so he added a bit of flour to thicken it. In our opinion, it needed a bit more flavor, so he added a dash of Italian seasoning. We look forward to making it again with the correct amount of parm; I’m sure it will be even better!
