The Best Garlic Alfredo Sauce

Just looking at this photo you can tell how creamy and divine this Alfredo Sauce is. From the third step of the recipe, melting the cream cheese, my mouth was watering. I knew from the beginning that this was going to be amazing. This proved right at the very first bite! Both my hubbs and I loved this sauce, it is my new go-to alfredo sauce for sure!

½ cup butter
2 ounces cream cheese
2 cups heavy cream (or substitute half and half)
2 teaspoon garlic powder
½  tsp. fresh minced garlic
salt and freshly ground black pepper
½ tsp dried oregano
⅔ cup fresh grated parmesan cheese

In a medium to large saucepan melt the butter over medium heat. Add fresh minced garlic and cook for 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the cream cheese and whisk to smooth and melted. Whisk in the heavy cream.
Season with the garlic powder, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and whisk frequently until sauce thickens, around 15 minutes. Stir in the cheese and when melted, remove from heat and serve.

Made this sauce tonight, it was REALLY good! It tasted a lot like Olive Garden's! A bit on the garlicky side though with the fresh garlic AND 2t garlic powder... next time I may use just 1t. But that's just me! Overall, divine!

This was soon good, but I can't seem to get it to thicken up, have tried it twice, wondering if you have any tips of how thick it should be and/or how to get it to thicken up? It was still really good tho!
