8 ounces fettuccine (or sub for zucchini noodles) 2 tablespoons unsalted butter 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 1/4 cups 2% milk, or more, as needed 2 tablespoons heavy cream 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 2 ounces cream cheese 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste (if tolerated)
Directions: 1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well. 2. Melt butter in the same saucepan over medium heat.
3. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute.
4. Gradually whisk in milk, and cook, whisking constantly, until incorporated, about 1-2 minutes.
5. Stir in heavy cream and garlic until slightly thickened, about 1 minute. 6. Stir in cheeses until melted, about 1-2 minutes. If the mixture is too thick, add more milk as needed; season with Kosher salt to taste. 7. Stir in pasta and gently toss to combine.
