Homemade Alfredo Sauce

Kick the jarred stuff! Making homemade Alfredo sauce is easy, takes just a few simple ingredients and tastes so much better than the store bough version.

Ingredients Needed:

  • Butter
  • Whipping cream
  • Garlic powder or minced garlic
  • Dried parsley
  • Grated Parmesan cheese

How to Make:

  • First, in a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Then, add in whipping cream and whisk to combine.
  • Increase the heat and let the mixture simmer for about 5 minutes. Continue whisking, to avoid burning.
  • Whisk in the cheese and garlic. Continue until cheese is combined and the sauce is heated thoroughly.
  • Stir in dried parsley.
  • If your sauce seems too thick, it can be thinned out with a bit of hot water.

Storage: Keep sauce in a covered container/jar. Use within 2-3 days. Once the sauce is refrigerated, it may firm up. When reheating, whisk cold sauce with a bit of milk or water in a saucepan over low heat. Continue whisking until the sauce is heated completely. I don’t recommend freezing the sauce.
