Rich and Creamy Alfredo Sauce

As a newlywed couple I have a few select go to recipes that I can put with a protein and some vegetables without too much fuss. This recipe also has a special place in my heart as it is the first thing Jeff and I cooked together when we were dating. We have spent many nights making and perfecting this recipe and I hope you enjoy.


5-6 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup of butter
1/2 cup of heavy cream
1 cup of shredded Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste
Cooked pasta of choice


In a large sauce pan melt butter and add garlic on medium. Constantly stir butter and garlic until it begins to brown (will go through a bubbling stage), slowly add in heavy cream and keep stirring until well mixed. Slowly add in majority of the cheese (keep a little aside to sprinkle on the top of the pasta) . Sauce will begin to thicken add salt and pepper to taste. Combine with cooked pasta and serve hot.

Tips: We add grilled chicken, mushrooms, and/or sauteed shrimp. You can add steamed asparagus or broccoli to add some vegetables. This is a great recipe that you can customize and add different things too. We also just have it with grilled pork chops, chicken, or steak as a side dish.

P.S. I will add pictures soon. I guess alfredo is on the menu this week. 

Eat, Love, and Enjoy
