This no-fuss fondue is based on store-bought Alfredo pasta sauce, which works as the thickener; just add shredded Swiss cheese and a little white wine. Because most Alfredo sauces contain nutmeg, the seasoning is already in place.

The cheese needs just 5 minutes to melt, and then you'll be all set to dunk cubes of French bread, slices of pear or whatever you fancy. And the recipe doubles easily if you want to serve more than four.

EASY CHEESE FONDUE Yield: 4 servings
