  • Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Pour the mixture into a saucepan and slowly heat on the stove until it simmers.
  • Cook and stir until warm and slightly thickened.
  • Add cooked pasta, chicken, or veggies and fold into sauce just before serving.
  • Top with additional parmesan if desired, and enjoy!


To make a thicker sauce, reserve some of the milk and add in a tablespoon at a time until the perfect consistency.
