Homemade Alfredo Sauce Recipe: Ingredients
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 cup heavy cream – also called whipping cream
- 1 clove garlic – crushed
- 1 1/2 cups freshly grated parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
- Pepper taste
- Optional – 1 tablespoon white whine
Easy Alfredo Sauce Recipe: Method
In a saucepan – on medium heat – melt the butter. Add the garlic and the wine – if using – and heat through.
Add the cream.
When the cream mixture is very hot – but not boiling – add a little of the cheese at a time. Mix the whole time with a wire whisk.
Notes: If you add the cheese all at once, it will not melt properly so add a little at a time. Let’s say about 1/4 cup.
Also make sure that your sauce does not boil or your cheese and your cream will separate. Slow and steady is much better.
Add the parsley, the pepper and serve.
Note: You do not need to add salt for the parmesan cheese is pretty salty on its own.
