Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

This recipe is to die for good and to die for easy... I made it last night for dinner and everyone loved it. All the kids had seconds and some even wanted thirds. Thank you Emily for sharing this recipe with me.

Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup
5 cups chicken broth (I added 3 more cups of water because I like more liquid in my soup.)
2 handfuls of shredded carrots
3 stalks of celery finely chopped
1/2 chopped onion (optional)
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 can evaporated milk
12 oz. bag of Reames homemade egg noodles (freezer section)( I used the regular dried pasta because they didn't carry this brand and it was very good)
1 Rotisserie chicken (I used a can of chicken from Costco)

Pick all of the chicken off of the Rotisserie chicken and shred. Put chicken stock, carrots, celery, and noodles in chicken broth and boil for 20 minutes. Then add chicken, soup, and milk into broth and vegetable mixture. If the soup is not thick enough for your likings, make cornstarch and a little water into a paste and add to soup pot. Let thicken and serve with a yummy piece of bread or roll and salad!

Just Like Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce

I got this recipe from my friend Emily and I thought that I would share it with you. I have been looking for an Alfredo sauce recipe that is good and I think that I have found it.

1/2 cup Butter
2 to 4 oz. Cream Cheese (depending on how cream cheesy you want it)
1 pint Heavy Whip Cream
3/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
1 cup Parmesan Cheese

In saucepan, melt butter. Add cream cheese, whip cream, garlic, salt, and pepper. Whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil. Drop heat but keep heat high enough for a simmer. Simmer sauce for 20 minutes, stirring every few minutes. Take from heat and stir in cheese. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes.
