Alfredo Sauce

This is a super simple and delicious recipe.  I enjoy over pasta or as a pizza sauce.  It takes no time to make.  You will have dinner on the table under an hour!!

Alfredo Sauce

October 043

Ingredients

4 Tablespoons butter
1 garlic clove, minced
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese (I use Romano, Parmigiana Reggiano, Grana Padano – whatever I have on hand)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper (white pepper if you have it – I don’t)
1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped (if I have it I use it)

Directions

**Make you pasta (linguine, shells, whatever you like) while you are preparing the sauce.  It is best to have the pasta ready when the sauce is done.**

1.  Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium/low heat
2.  Add the garlic, cream and pepper. Bring mixture to a simmer.
3.  Stir often – 4-5 minutes.  It will cook down and get thicker.
4.  Add the Parmesan cheese and simmer sauce for 3-5 minutes or until thickened and smooth.
5.  Pour the sauce over pasta and serve.

Have any leftover sauce?  Why not make a chicken alfredo pizza?

  1. Oh, to live in dairy country. Cow products are crazy high in this neck of the woods. I’ll NEVER give up my cheese, though!
