Learn how to make the BEST Alfredo Sauce with this easy recipe!
grated Parmesan cheese
Melt butter and heavy cream together in a large skillet over medium heat.
Heat until sauce begins to simmer, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium low.
Stir in Parmesan cheese in batches. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
To serve, add 1-pound cooked pasta (such as fettuccine) to sauce. Toss together for a minute or two, until sauce thickens and coats noodles. Remove from heat and serve immediately. Enjoy!
To get the timing right, start cooking your pasta before you make the sauce. You want to cook the pasta until it's just shy of al dente (it will finish cooking in the sauce).
This Italian-American sauce is traditionally served with fettuccine. Use one pound pasta, or for a saucier pasta, 12 ounces fettuccine.
For best results, use top quality ingredients for this recipe (no canned or pre-shredded Parmesan) and avoid making substitutions.
For extra flavor, try sauteing garlic in the butter (before adding the heavy cream), or add crushed red pepper flakes or fresh lemon zest.
The finished Alfredo Sauce will be fairly thin, but it will thicken as you toss it with the pasta.
Alfredo Sauce does not reheat well. For best results, prepare sauce while pasta cooks.
