Why Add Cream Cheese to Alfredo Sauce?

Using cream cheese in your Alfredo sauce is a no brainer! It’s ridiculously easy, ultra creamy, and doesn’t do that thing that Alfredo sauces sometimes do…you know, when they separate or gets way too thick. Adding cream cheese is almost like a shortcut way to add creaminess and flavor!
