When I say best, I mean it. This sauce is SO delish you could drink it, you know if you were into that sort of thing, drinking sauces and all…
The recipe is enough sauce to feed approx 8 people. You can always make more or less depending on how much you and your family love it. We usually make extra and store it in fridge since we eat it on other things like too like steamed veggies or cooked cubed potatoes or talapia, etc. We mainly serve this with fettuccine or egg noodles. Want to try it on angel hair pasta but haven’t yet. We also add shredded chicken or tiny shrimp to our bowl as well along with some steamed veggies and garlic bread on the side. Makes a great meal!
Best Alfredo Sauce
1/4 cup butter
1/2 block of cream cheese
1 quart of heavy whipping cream (NO not the sweetened cream!) (You can use just regular whipping cream but the whisk process will take longer so we prefer heavy)
2 cloves or 2 tbsp garlic, crushed (add more of less depending on how garlic-y you like it)
2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley (if desired)
Salt & Pepper (we like lots of pepper in ours)
Note: I have used “lowfat” versions of all ingredients and it has come out just as yummy, maybe a lil thinner but still good 🙂
Melt your butter, mix in garlic, then add the cream cheese. Stir till melted together. Add your heavy whipping cream, parsley if desired (you can at this step or top your finished dish with it), salt and pepper and begin whisking. This is a tedious process, not going to lie. It takes a good 20-30 minutes to whisk this stuff to thicken it. If you want a “thinner” sauce then of course you can whisk for a few and stop but we like a thicker sauce so we whisk, at times we take turns whisking (especially if we are making more for extra people) Turn off heat and add the Parmesan, you can add all 2 cups or you can add hlaf and use the other half to top your dish, the choice is yours. Allow to cool a bit as this will help it thicken as well. Serve and enjoy! You really don’t need a lot of sauce on your pasta or dish. A little sauce goes a long way!
P.S. I use a silicone whisk so I don’t scratch the crap outta my good pans, just an FYI 🙂
Here is 1 that I love and for a great price!
