There is nothing better, in my humble opinion, than a plate full of creamy pasta. Marinara is a great sauce, but there’s something so deliciously sinful about Alfredo that I gleefully shove my guilt down deep. When I eat Alfredo, I tell myself I’ll worry about my hips tomorrow. 

While I sit here and wax poetic about Alfredo sauce, I have a confession to make. I never make it at home. Maybe because, until now, I’ve never found a recipe that was as simple and delicious as the one submitted by TK member asweetpeachef (Lacey). When I came across her recipe for Garlic Alfredo Sauce, I was immediately intrigued. With cream cheese, garlic and just a few other simple ingredients, this was definitely my kind of recipe.

This sauce is so creamy and rich, you’ll be eating spoonfuls before you even get to slather your pasta with it. I’m glad to say this Alfredo sauce will be a staple at my house from now on.

Gather some butter, garlic cloves, cream cheese, milk, and parmesan and you’re just about set. Don’t forget a little salt and pepper, too.

Remove from heat when sauce reaches desired consistency. The sauce will thicken quickly.

Pour over a plateful of your favorite pasta, and you have a quick and delicious meal that even the pickiest eater will devour. Alternatively, just eat spoonfuls straight out of the pan. 

Thank you so much Lacey for sharing this wonderful recipe, I can’t wait to try it over some stuffed ravioli or tortellini!

Description

It’s really a shame more people I meet don’t know how to make Alfredo Sauce, since it is one of the easiest, most flavorful sauces I make.

Ingredients

  • 4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Finely Minced
  • ½ packages (8 Oz. Package) Cream Cheese, Softened And Cut Into 1/2-inch Cubes
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 3 ounces, weight Parmesan Cheese, Grated
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 pinch Kosher Salt To Taste

Preparation Instructions

Melt butter in a medium, nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add cream cheese, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Add milk, a little at a time, whisking until smooth. Stir in parmesan and pepper. Season with kosher salt, if needed. Remove from heat when sauce reaches desired consistency. Sauce will thicken quickly.

Enjoy!

Hi! I am currently studying abroad in Italy, and believe it or not, Fettuccine Alfredo is not on most menus. My roommates and I cook for each other once a week, so I wanted to try out this recipe. It turned out great! I got a little confused with the amount of cream cheese required, so when I doubled the recipe, I actually used 16oz. But, it tasted SO good still! I just read through the comments to realize that I used too much, but really, it was so yummy. I cooked some chicken and broccoli to mix in, and it was a hit with the girls—Thanks for a great recipe!

Does this recipe call for 1/2 of an 8 ounce package of cream cheese? The way it is listed it is not quite clear. And what is 3 ounces of parmesan cheese? A qtr cup? Half cup? I like to grate my own so I would like to know a measurement cup portion? Thanks!

How much does this make? And any ideas if this can be canned and stored?

Can you freeze this recipe?

OMG! Just made this for dinner tonight with some grilled chicken and linguini noodles. SO GOOD! Definitely a keeper!
