Alfredo Sauce Recipe
Over the years, I’ve tweaked my Mama’s Alfredo sauce recipe trying to get it closer to that restaurant version I craved. 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 20 minutes, it makes a mighty delicious and comforting classic quick-fix dish!
How to Make Homemade Alfredo Sauce
To make my homemade Alfredo sauce, you’ll need just a handful of basic, delicious ingredients.
Ingredients for Homemade Alfredo Sauce
Butter and Olive Oil – This combination gives the dish an amazing flavor!
Cream Cheese – Make sure you use whole fat cream cheese, not reduced or fat free, for a creamy, delicious sauce.
Whipping Cream – I use heavy whipping cream as it makes a thick and creamy Alfredo sauce.
Stone House Seasoning – Adds the seasoning to the sauce that gives it the perfect flavor!
Parmesan Cheese – Make sure you use real Parmesan cheese – the kind in a wedge or block – and shred it yourself. It only takes a minute and it is so worth it because Parmesan is such an important part of the dish. You definitely do not want to use the powdered “cheese” in a can because it won’t give the desired results.
Mozzarella Cheese – Use whole fat cheese and not reduced or fat free for the creamiest, best Alfredo.
To make this recipe, 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!
