  • 3 tbs butter preferably grass fed
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp parsley or Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese - mozzarella, parmesan, goats cheese mozzarella
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a saucepan over medium heat, add in all of the ingredients except cheese. Allow the sauce to come up to a simmer, stirring frequently, and cook for five minutes. Add cheese and continue to cook until the cheese is melted and it starts to stick to the bottom of the pan. Take off heat and add to your favorite pasta, use as a dip for bread, etc.
