When making the alfredo sauce, you can make it a little thicker by adding more cheese because the zucchini will release some water, making the sauce a little thinner. But we've tasted it with the thinner sauce and it's equally delicious!

In same pan, melt butter. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Whisk in flour and continue whisking to remove large clumps of flour.Slowly whisk in milk.

Add salt and pepper to taste.
Add zucchini noodles and cook in the sauce until it becomes tender, about 2-3 minutes. Do not overcook the zucchini noodles or they’ll become mush.
