Alfredo sauce or asiago sauce

I wanted to see if I could make an alfredo sauce that was a little less bad for me.

So I made two, and compared them side by side.

The first was regular: 1/4 cup heavy cream, 2 tbsp butter, minced garlic, shredded parmesan cheese, and black pepper. Some add egg yolks, but I didn't.

And the second substituted half and half for the cream, and light butter for the butter.

There was a very slight difference, but not enough to be that noticeable.

I later learned that if you use asiago cheese instead of parmesan cheese, it becomes asiago sauce.
