A Better Fettuccine Alfredo!

Last time I attempted a cheese sauce, it was a disaster. More or less. But this time? This was magical.

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, add a little olive oil, and dump your noodles in. Also, toss a stick of butter into a medium saucepan and melt it over medium low heat.
When the butter's melted, toss in two spoonfuls of cream cheese and stir until melted, creamy, and smooth (I use my big size spoon, but you could get by with a smaller size spoon if you want). After that, pour in one pint of heavy cream, one clove of garlic (minced), and season with salt and pepper. Simmer and stir until the noodles are done, at least ten minutes. Remove from heat and stir in about a cup of shredded parmesan cheese. Pour over the noodles, toss, and serve.
