I love a good creamy pasta sauce. This Alfredo sauce recipe combines some of my absolute favorite things: butter, heavy cream, and cheese. It's one of the most decadent sauces you can eat, so I try not to indulge too often.... but when I do, it's magical. So, it's kind of funny that making this Alfredo sauce recipe is so simple and hardly takes any time at all.
A Classic Alfredo Sauce Recipe
One of my husbands favorite meals is chicken fettuccine Alfredo. He gets pretty excited when he sees me pulling out my Kitchenaid pasta attachment and all of the ingredients. The way that I make my Alfredo Sauce recipe only requires 5 ingredients: butter, flour, milk, heavy cream, and Parmesan cheese.
It's one of those quick and easy recipes that I love. I start by making a Roux (cooking butter and flour together.) Once my butter and flour has just begun to brown, I'll add my milk and heavy cream to the pot. After the mixture starts to bubble, I'll then add the Parmesan and stir until it's all melted.
That's it. It's so easy! Of course this Alfredo sauce recipe is yummy over pasta, but I like to use this on pizza, like this Philly cheese steak pizza recipe and in place of a creamy soup for green bean casserole too. What other recipes do you like to use Alfredo sauce in? Leave a comment below.
