Easy Keto Alfredo Sauce

Rated as 4.9 out of 5 Stars

"Treat yourself and guests to creamy homemade Alfredo sauce with this easy recipe. This sauce pairs well with pasta or zoodles (spiralized zucchini). You can even add chicken or shrimp. Sauce will become very thick if stored in the refrigerator. Simply heat the sauce up for it to be pourable."

Made it as shown and it tasted great. I always make a recipe the way it is written first time or not at all. For the reviewer that left out the garlic, parmesan cheese, and the nutmeg...what i...

What the heck is the point of an Alfredo sauce without garlic and Parmesan cheese? Seriously? You are very wrong! Sorry, but it's true!!!

This is my secret weapon for staying on Keto/Low Carb program. Try it on spaghetti squash or zoodles. Excellent!

Added some sauteed mushrooms and old bay.

I always judge a recipe by asking myself: would I pay for this in a restaurant? And the answer for this sauce is ABSO-FREAKIN-LUTELY! This sauce is PHENOMENAL! Way better than almost any Alfredo...

100% spot on. Better than any restaurant

I made it according to the recipe but for the nutmeg. It was AWESOME! This recipe is so simple that I will never buy Alfredo Sauce in a jar again...ever.

Delicious!!! And easy to make

I left out the nutmeg, added fresh mushrooms and spinach and poured it over center cut pork chops.. absolutely delicious! Thank you for sharing!
