You have to try this easy, Homemade Alfredo Sauce with Garlic! It’s got a creamy, velvety texture and huge flavor from Parmesan and Romano. Try it over pasta, chicken or zoodles! Gluten free.
A few months ago, a reader asked if I have an Alfredo sauce recipe. I told her I didn’t but would add it to my list.
It kind of fell to the back burner, though, as I got busy with the holidays, work and a ridiculous number of medical appointments (mostly for my back).
Then, my son recently told me he uses jarred Alfredo sauce.
GASP! It’s processed! I lectured him about all the sodium and Lord-knows-what-else in there.
“Well, you don’t have homemade Alfredo sauce on your blog!” he retorted.
That was all it took.
I might be a food blogger, editor, writer and 20 other things. But mothering is my first order of business.
When my kids need me, I’ll drop everything. Especially since they don’t live at home anymore. (Tito, get me a tissue!)
Well, look what Mamma’s got now. I texted my son this Alfredo sauce recipe as soon as I nailed it.
And today, I’m sharing that motherly love with you. My homemade Alfredo sauce is so much better than store-bought.
It’s definitely rich, but there are just five simple ingredients, plus salt and pepper. I’m talking cream, a touch of butter, a little pressed garlic (affiliate link), and equal parts Parmesan and Romano cheeses for the best flavor and a creamy, velvety texture.
That texture.is.everything. And the sauce is gluten free.
I tried many times using half and half instead of cream in this recipe. The flavor was good, but the texture was lacking.
So, I finally bit the bullet and went for the cream. My hubby and I inhaled our fettuccine Alfredo.
Then, we ate diet food for the rest of the day. It was worth it!
Serve this homemade Alfredo sauce over
- zucchini noodles (zoodles)
It’s delicious with spinach mixed in too.
