Amanda and Chelsea's Homemade Alfredo Sauce

I hate, absolutely hate, canned alfredo sauce! So, I called my amazing sister one day, and she gave me this recipe. We talked as I was making it, and added things here and there, and it came out PERFECT!!! Honestly, I will never eat canned alfredo sauce again! Woo-hoo for sisters!

Homemade Alfredo Sauce

1/4 Cup butter
3/4 Cup flour
1 1/2 Cup 2% milk
1 1/2 Cups chicken broth
3/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp. Parsley Flakes
2 tsp. Oregano

Melt the butter on low heat. Add flour, milk and broth and cook until slightly thicken. Add Parmesan cheese 1/4 cup at a time. Heat until parmesan is melted, then add parsley flakes and oregano.

Chef's tips:
LOW HEAT! Enough said! (Okay, so one more tip...I used 1% the first time(because we are anti-2%) and it wasn't quite the correct consistency. Definitely use 2%!!!)
