Simple Alfredo Sauce(As Good As Olive Garden)

March 9, 2020

I love it when I try a new recipe and it works out perfectly and, makes my people happy.
This recipe for Alfredo sauce did just that. I found this one over Modern Honey

My daughter loves Pasta Alfredo, but the sauce from the jar is not her favorite. I have played around with several recipes and had not found one that was as close to what she was wanting, until this one.

As she was eating this she said, "it was as good as Olive Garden" Yes, Score!

The hardest part of this recipe was waiting on the Alfredo pasta to come to a boil.

This Alfredo sauce recipe with hints of garlic and fresh parmesan cheese uses only a few ingredients

Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo


Fettuccine Alfredo Sauce

1 lb Fettuccine Pasta 
6 Tablespoons Butter
1 Garlic Clove(minced)
1 1/2 cups Heavy Cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan Cheese
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley

In a large pot, heat water over high heat until boiling. Add salt to season the water. Once boiling, add fettuccine and according to package instructions.
In a large skillet or pan, heat butter over medium heat. add minced garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in heavy cream.
Let the cream reduce and cook for 5 to 8 minutes. Add half of the parmesan cheese to the mixture and whisk well until smooth. Keep over heat and whisk well until cheese is melted
Toss alfredo sauce with fettuccine pasta and add the other half of the parmesan cheese
*Add a little pasta water if it needs to be thinned down
*Use real fresh ingredients, you will notice the taste
*If you like more sauce taste you can use less fettuccine

 This recipe made me question the difference in whipping cream and heavy whipping cream and here is the answer.

I added shrimp to my fettuccine alfredo but, you can add chicken, sausage or any other meat you like.
