The Cost of Making Alfredo Sauce

Updated on December 15, 2011

I love Fettuccine Alfredo and this is one of my favorite recipes. With the cost of butter, cream and cheese it is also very expensive. It is definitely cheaper to buy in a jar or an envelope but when I make it from scratch I can control the quality of the ingredients and the amount of salt and fat. I also know there are no preservatives in it.

I've included the cost of my ingredients at the bottom of the article so you can compare to prices in your area.
