Easy Alfredo Sauce

Over the years, I have made numerous different recipes for Alfredo sauce, looking for the one that would satisfy me and my family. I actually made this one on a whim (and ended up having to borrow milk from my neighbor to do it) one evening when I needed a quick dinner.  What really made the difference was using parmesano reggiano instead of just parmesan, and accidentally doubling the amount of cheese.  The result was lovely smooth cheesy alfredo goodness.  And I finally have a go-to Alfredo sauce recipe.
