How to Make Alfredo Sauce

A plate of alfredo tortellini

Alfredo sauce for your favorite pasta is really easy to make, and it’s OH so delicious. Our daughter whipped this Alfredo sauce up just the other night for this amazing Tortellini Alfredo.

I’m showing the fresh parsley as optional because our grandson doesn’t like anything green in his food. But I do recommend using parsley for this Alfredo Sauce.

This recipe will be enough for 1 pound of your favorite pasta.

Here is what you need:

1/2 Stick of butter
1 1/2 cups of Parmesan Cheese (grated)
1 cup of heavy cream
1 clove of garlic (minced)
½ cup of fresh chopped parsley (optional)

This is what you do:

  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter with the garlic, and then add the cream.
  2. Bring this to a simmer while stirring, and add the grated cheese.
  3. Continue to stir until you bring it to a slight boil
  4. Pour over and mix with your favorite pasta, garnish with the fresh parsley, and enjoy a simple pasta Alfredo dinner.
 As always Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy it
