  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste
  Half and half 6 Cup (96 tbs)
  Garlic 6 Clove (30 gm), diced and smashed
  Grated parmesan cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs), freshly grated
  Crumbled bacon 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Italian seasoning 2 Tablespoon
  Thickening agent 1 Teaspoon

Over a med low heat bring the half and have to a simmer,
after the half and half starts simmering add garlic,bacon,and itallian seasoning.
whisk until well mixed.
Slowly add the parmesan a little at a time while constantly whisking. continue whisking and mixing until parmesan has melted and the sauce has began to thicken. if sauce does not thicken to your taste add a little more and continue whisking until it has reached the desired thickness. you can add a mesa to help speed up the mixture, if the sauce becomes too thick add a little milk until it has slightly thinned.

this sauce works well with any pasta or shrimp.

If you want a tomato basil alfredo simply add a little roasted tomato or tomato pesto towards the end of the thickening process.

Alfredo-Carbonara - Interesting I have never had carbonara or alfredo with Italian seasonings. How would you lighten this? Too much fat in the cream which kills me. Shanti/Mary-Anne

ok you can substitute the half and half with 2% milk just be sure to add either starch or flour for a thickining agent, and you could even double the cheese instaed of using starch if you like, let me know if that'll work for ya if not i'll give you another alternative.
