Creamy Alfredo Sauce

1 pint Heavy Cream
8 ounces shredded fresh parmesan cheese ( not powered)
8 ounces shredded fresh romano cheese
16 Tbsp butter ( 2 sticks) ( not margarine)
6-8 cloves garlic, crushed, pressed or finely chopped
1/4 sweet onion finely chopped
Patience, a lot of it

Melt butter slowly in a large saucepan on low. Add garlic and onion, raise temp to just above med low allowing garlic and onion to fry a little bit. then lower temp just below med low so the butter does NOT brown. Now add the heavy cream, and the parmesan and romano cheeses. Grab patience and hold it tightly to make you stand there for quite some time now. Stir, stir, stir it regularly, that is the trick, to stir it wait, stir it wait, stir it wait. Do NOT let it sit, it will scorch and then YUK! Keep stirring until there is no more solids, now pour over your favorite pasta or a pizza shell and enjoy.  Add chicken to your pasta for some fabulous Chicken Pasta Alfredo.
