Recipe Rating

5 stars from 1 rating of Creamy Alfredo Sauce

My family loves this sauce! I make some kind of Alfredo dish at least once a month. Super simple and fast.

Normally I am not a person to measure out ingredients, I just eye ball most things. Even with this sauce, so don't worry if you put a little to much of anything, or not enough of another thing. its fine. I have learned to just have fun while cooking, don't over think it and it will all start to just come to you. :)

  • 2 Cloves Garlic, Garlic powder can also be used
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, Grated

  1. In a medium sauce pan over low/ medium heat, add the butter and garlic. Allow butter to melt before moving on. Stir almost constantly.
  2. Add in cream, salt, and pepper, bring to a simmer. Do not allow to rapidly boil (sauce will easily boil over). Continue to stir.
