Homemade Alfredo Sauce
This recipe couldn’t be easier … Four ingredients and ten minutes are all you need for Homemade Alfredo Sauce! Once you try it, I’m convinced you’ll ditch the jarred stuff!
I’ve met so many people who didn’t realize how easy it is to make your own Alfredo Sauce – and I’m hoping to make a believer out of you if you aren’t already! A few common ingredients make the most amazing sauce – butter, heavy cream, freshly minced garlic, and freshly shredded Parmesan cheese. I can’t stress enough how important it is to use good quality ingredients – buy real cheese and skip the stuff in the green shaker canister!

This sauce made the perfect sauce for chicken alfredo! It took around 20 minutes from start to finish, with cooking the chicken. I didn’t have heavy cream, but I used skim milk and 2 tbsp of cornstarch to substitute. It was perfect! Thanks for such a great recipe, and a delicious dinner! ?
