How to Make It:

Preheat oven to 350oF

Put pasta in a saucepan and cook until tender.

Heat butter in a Dutch Oven. Add cream cheese. Use a whisk for stirring.

Add minced garlic, onion powder and black pepper to the bowl. Season with Italian spice. Blend until smooth and butter/cream cheese melts.
