Healthy Alfredo Sauce

Trying to eat healthy when you have an intense love for cheese is not always the easiest task. A couple of nights ago I wanted mac and cheese, but did not have any of the delicious box kind (I only buy organic, so it's practically healthy). I decided to make due with some makeshift ingredients that I had in the house. I had fresh broccoli and some shells, and decided to make them in a makeshift alfredo sauce. The end result was a serendipitously delicious meal. Here's what I used, in rough estimates as I threw things in without measuring:

Alfredo Sauce
Fresh parmesan is always a great topper!

1/3 cup reduced fat 4 cheese italian mix (shredded cheese)
2 tbsp. fat free cream cheese
1/4 cup skim milk
1 tsp. butter
dash of salt

Melt the ingredients together in a small sauce pan and cook over low heat until it thickens up a bit. 

As a side note: I boiled the shells while double boiler steaming the broccoli above it, which while not recommended, did work and conserve some space and time.
