Garlic alfredo sauce recipe, Home made ravioli

Yesterday DD came up  from Oly and we spent the day making home made ravioli!  We had a great time (of course  any time I get to spend with DD is always  great!)  It was the perfect Mother /Daughter day.   We gossiped and chatted all day and in the end enjoyed a delicious meal that we were both proud of.  (poor Jimmy missed it cuz he had to work a really long day and then got locked in the parking garage at work) The star of the day was the hand cranked food processor that  DD  gave me for a  Christmas gift  a couple of years ago.
  We used  the very simple pasta dough  recipe on the back of the semolina bag.  The stuffing for the ravioli was a thicker version of the alfredo sauce recipe, with chicken  added to it.  The alfredo sauce recipe is  below .  I'm putting it here so DD can have access  to it any time she wants to call it up.

Frankie's   Alfredo  Sauce:
(this recipe is more of a guideline than a recipe so add or take away as you please)

3 or 4 cloves of garlic, minced
1  tablespoon of butter
1/4 cup cream
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup  grated  parmesan
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

IN a sauce pan..... brown your garlic in the butter.  Add the cream and milk.  When it starts to boil add your cheese and whisk til smooth and creamy.  Stir in the parsley. Remove from heat and let stand for a couple of minutes.  If you want your sauce thinner ...add more milk ( a little at a time).  If you want it  thicker...add more cheese.
