    1. In a large pot with boiling salted water cook fettuccine pasta until al dente. Drain.
    2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan over medium-high heat melt margarine; add garlic and saute for one minute. Add flour, stirring constantly. Gradually whisk in milk and continue to stir until sauce thickens, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add the cream cheese, grated Parmesan cheese and ground black pepper. Cook until the cheese has completely melted.
    3. Serve sauce over cooked and drained fettuccine pasta. Sprinkle the top with fresh parsley.
