Alfredo Sauce

Homemade Alfredo Sauce

5 from 7 reviews

Creamy homemade alfredo sauce is so easy and quick to make and tastes so much better than jarred without any preservative and additives. 


  • ½ cup butter
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 cups freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 12 ounces fettucine noodles cooked (optional)


  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium low heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute while stirring.
  2. Whisk in the cream, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Simmer until slightly thickened. Do not boil.
  3. Reduce the heat as low as it will go and stir in the Parmesan Cheese until melted. For best results serve promptly.  
  4. If desired add cooked pasta and toss to coat. 


  • Use freshly grated Parmesan Cheese. The cheese in the canister does not melt properly and the fresh cheese tastes so much better.
  • You need heavy cream for this recipe. Milk and half and half do not reduce and thicken like heavy cream does.
  • Do not cover the pan with a lid. It will cause excess moisture to accumulate and thin the cream.
  • This sauce is best served when it is fresh. The longer it sits the more the fat and the cream separate.
  • You can freeze this sauce although the texture may change due to its high fat content. Please see below for the best way to freeze it.
