DIY 5 Minute Alfredo Sauce
I have a love hate relationship with Alfredo sauce. Â I love it because it tastes so good, and is creamy and delicious, but I hate it because it really is not that great for you…all that cream, cheese and butter. Â Regardless, we eat it about 5 or 6 times a year, and I usually just buy a $2 bottle from the grocery store. Â I have tried making it in the past, and it always seems to break apart, with the oils separating and leaving the cheese gritty and clumpy…gross! Â Then I tried this sauce, and I will be making it this way every time now. So easy, and it worked great! Â Was creamy and delicious, just how Alfredo should be.
1 2/3 cups heavy whipping cream
4 Tbsp. butter
4 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1 1/2 cups fresh grated Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp. garlic salt
Preheat cream with butter until it starts to simmer. Â Whisk as it simmers so it doesn’t stick to bottom. Â Press garlic into cream and cook for another minute.
Add Parmesan cheese and whisk until melted. Â Add salt at the end.
Mine thickened as it cooled off a bit, and was nice and thick after it cooled completely, and stayed thick the next day when we had it with leftovers.
