This homemade Alfredo Sauce is the best I’ve ever tasted. It’s creamy and decadent, yet such a simple classic. I love to whip up a batch to go over a favorite pasta for one of the most comforting, quick suppers ever. So super easy to make, I spent some time perfecting this recipe into what I consider to be the best. And once you see how quickly you can get this on the table, you’ll want to make it from scratch from now on. I can’t wait for you to try it!
After years of practice, I’ve mastered homemade Alfredo sauce that is perfect every single time that I make it. It takes me right back to those just after college years when two of my friends and I would make trips into Atlanta on a regular basis. We’d always have lengthy discussions about where we wanted to eat, but at least once a month, we’d visit Olive Garden for their Fettuccine Alfredo.
Alfredo Sauce Recipe
Over the years, I’ve tweaked my Mama’s Alfredo sauce recipe trying to get it closer to that version we craved and still couldn’t visit an Olive Garden without having to order a bowl of it! A little more cream, a blend of butter and olive oil, a little more this, a little less of that, and then I found the secret. Well, at least the secret to what I think is the best I’ve ever tasted.
This easy Alfredo sauce is perfect over cooked pasta and since it is ready in less than 30 minutes, it makes a mighty delicious and comforting classic quick-fix dish!
How to Make Alfredo Sauce
To make my homemade Alfredo sauce, I start by adding the butter and olive oil to a medium sauce pan or skillet set over medium heat and let the butter melt.
Then, I add the cream cheese, whipping cream, and my Stone House Seasoning. If you haven’t already made the Stone House Seasoning, oh boy, you need it! 🙂 If you do not have it on hand, I’ve included a substitute in the notes of the recipe for you.
Bring all to a simmer, stirring frequently, until the sauce coats the back of a spoon, about 6 minutes.
Stir constantly and add the Parmesan and Mozzarella cheeses and allow to cook until the sauce is creamy, thick and smooth, about 3 more minutes.
Now it should be ready to remove from the heat, serve and enjoy!
