Easy, Delicious Alfredo Sauce

November 9, 2015

UnknownI don’t know about your family, but my family loves alfredo sauce. I add chicken to it most of the time, just because that is what I usually have on hand. It is delicious with shrimp or even shrimp, scallops and a little crab meat, if I want something fancy. This recipe is so easy it will become a welcome addition to your regular rotation of recipes. The only thing is, I don’t usually keep cream on hand so I had to start adding it to my grocery list. I hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as my family does.

Alfredo Sauce


1/4 cup butter

1 tablespoon minced garlic

2 cups heavy cream

1 cup grated parmesan cheese

salt and pepper to taste


Melt butter in a large skillet

add minced garlic  stir and do not let it get brown

add the cream and stir until it has warmed up

slowly add parmesan stirring until all is incorporated with the cream

continue stirring so it doesn’t clump up

salt and pepper to taste (I usually only add pepper)

The sauce is done. At this point you could add already cooked chicken or shrimp.

I serve over cooked linguine or penne pasta, sprinkled with a little grated parmesan cheese.

Bon Appetite
