Pasta Alfredo

We've been so busy lately!  So so so busy!  Time has been flying by and it's been difficult to blog too. 
I made hubby a big pot of spaghetti sauce the other day and I"m not too fond of red sauce.  Whenever I make the hubs a meal that isn't my fave I usually whip this up for my dinner.  
It's super fast~  
Enough time to boil the pasta and about 3 minutes to whip up the alfredo sauce.  
It is SO easy! I aint gonna lie.  Hubby had spagetti 2 nights in a row and I had this.  ;)
 1/3 cup of whipping cream
6 ounces of favorite frozen ravioli (or other pasta of your choice)
1 1/2 ounces of mozzarella cheese (I've used Monterey Jack in a pinch and it works fine)
Bring water in a saucepan to boil and throw in ravioli.  
Boil for a few minutes.  Drain and Set aside. 
Using the same pot that you boiled your pasta in melt about 1 tsp- 1 tbsp of butter.  Add cream and cheese.  Over  very low heat stir until cheese is melted.  If you turn up the heat too high the cheese will get grainy.  Add more milk if neccesary to desired texture.   Add ravioli to sauce and toss to coat.  
Top with cracked pepper and Parmesan Cheese if desired. 
Been toying around with making some recipe cards.  ;)  Here's my first one!
