Homemade Alfredo Sauce
This Alfredo Sauce recipe is very rich and delicious. It was named by an Italian restaurateur, Alfredo di Lelio, at his restaurant Alfredo alla Scrofa in 1914 as a variation of fettuccine al burro (al burro meaning with butter). Probably the most familiar dish using this white sauce, in America, is Fettuccini Alfredo.
This is such an easy recipe for that you may want to make it often using different shaped pasta and adding grilled chicken or seafood. I have yet tried a store bought sauce that can compare to homemade.
- 12 tbsp. butter
- 2 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 c. heavy cream
- 1/2 c. chopped fresh parsley
- Pepper to taste
Melt butter slowly over medium-low heat. Stir in heavy cream and cheese. Stir constantly (or it will scorch) until cheese is melted and sauce has thickened. Do Not Boil.
Add parsley and pepper just before serving. Serve over pot pasta.
