Easy Alfredo Sauce

My boys don't always eat spaghetti sauce. So I've tried to mix it up with Alfredo sauce on our pasta every once in a while. I came across a recipe with ingredients we have on hand (we're more likely to have cream cheese in the fridge than actual cream).

1/4 cup butter
1/2 pkg (4oz) cream cheese
1 tsp garlic powder
1 c milk
3 oz (6 T) Parmesan cheese
dash pepper (1/16 tsp)

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
Add cream cheese and garlic powder; whisk until smooth.
Add milk gradually, whisking out lumps.
Stir in Parmesan and pepper. Heat until thickened; remove from heat & toss with pasta.

I halved this recipe from the original, but we still end up with leftover sauce when it's just our family eating.
