Alfredo Pasta Recipe

This quick, simple meal can have variations of meat (or no meat at all) and pasta. Follow the pictures.
Put 1 lb of turkey burger (or your choice of meat) in a skillet

Add a tablespoon or two of olive oil to the pan
Add 1-2 tsp of garlic salt 
1/2-1 tsp black pepper

1 tablespoon onion powder
 Fry meat over medium heat until well done.
Add 1 cup of milk

1 stick of butter

8 oz cream cheese

 Chop and stir together over low heat
until the butter and cream cheese are melted.
Cook 1 lb of pasta per directions on package, rinsing slightly with cold water when it's done.
Put half of the pasta in a casserole dish

Spread half the Alfredo mixture on top and
then repeat the layers once more.
Does that seem like a lot of food? Our family scarfs it up in one meal and wishes for more.

As I made this dish, I just pulled the recipe from my head and kept thinking I'm missing something. Now I remember- I usually add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese to this. Well, it was good without it.

If you go meatless, start with melting the butter. Then add the milk and other ingredients. You can also use raw garlic and onion if you wish, rather than garlic salt and onion powder. Just saute them in the butter to begin with.
