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 is it that you think you made? Whatever it was it was not Alfredo Sauce. Sounds like an easy Bechamel...without the flour; again what is that? Read More

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 sauce I’ve ever had in any restaurant. Bonus, it was incredibly easy as well. I will NEVER use a jarred sauce again. Read More
