Alfredo Sauce

Updated and revised March 2020

Yummy, lip smackin' good, creamy Alfredo Sauce. Look, seriously you may never buy it again after you make it yourself.

The BEST part is it only takes a few minutes and some simple ingredients to make. 

This alfredo sauce is awesome as Garlic Shrimp Alfredo, with meatballs instead of tomato sauce, Lasagna Roll-Ups, and a ton of other dishes.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 2 cups heavy cream or half and half
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp Italian parsley
  • pinch ground nutmeg
In a saucepan, combine the 
olive oil, minced garlic, and cream cheese. Simmer  over medium low heat until cream cheese is melted, stirring often.

Stir in the heavy cream or half and half and whisk in the Parmesan cheese. Continue whisking until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth. Toss in the Italian seasoning, parsley, and nutmeg stirring to blend. 

Simmer sauce for 15 to 20 minutes on low and serve w
ith your favorite pasta dishes.

Store any leftover alfredo sauce in your refrigerator. Alfredo Sauce will keep fresh for 3-5 days.
