Olive Garden Copycat Alfredo Sauce

2 cups half and half (or 1 cup milk and 1 cup heavy cream)
1 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon garlic powder
½ cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
½ cup fresh shredded Romano cheese
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper (or white)

Whisk together butter, garlic and half & half, bring to a simmer, in a medium saucepan over medium heat.  Add cheeses and whisk to combine.  Remove from heat.  Add cheese, a handful at a time. Stir until the cheese is melted and then add the next handful. Add salt and pepper.  Stir until cheese sauce is smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.  Alfredo sauce will thicken as it cools.

Serve and enjoy!
