Alfredo Sauce

I’ve heard that so many people have problems with Alfredo Sauce.

I find alfredo to be one of the easiest sauces to make. I don’t even use fresh cheese – too much work for me!

This is a 10 minute sauce that is delish. It is also very economical to make.


The Victims:

  • 3/4 Stick of Butter
  • 8 fl oz Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 2 cloves of garlic pressed
  • 1 1/2 Cup of Italian Finely Shredded Cheese (mozzarella, provolone, parmesan, romano, fontina & asiago – I use the Great Value brand from Walmart)
  • 1 tbs. Parsley
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste


Melt Butter in pan. Add Garlic.


Stir in Heavy Cream.

Add cheese in SLOWLY, 1/4 cup at a time. Stir frequently.


Add in parsley and stir. Add pepper and salt to taste. Serve immediately! I mixed in penne, chicken and broccoli.

      This is a recipe for 4. It covers a box of pasta well.

  • That recipe looks great and not too hard. Thanks for sharing. This will be on a menu in the next couple of weeks!
