Stir together and bring to a simmer over medium high heat.

Reduce heat to low and let cook covered for 15-20 minutes, or until pasta is tender.

Remove pot from heat and stir in parmesan cheese.  Fresh parmesan really works best in this alfredo sauce

Stir in chopped parsley and sprinkle with additional Mexi-Cajun Seasoning to taste.
