Homemade Alfredo Sauce
This easy Alfredo sauce calls for just a handful of ingredients and comes together in about 5 minutes. Toss fettucine in this sauce or drizzle over chicken.
Servings 8 servings
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 2 cups shredded Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Add the cream and butter to a sauce pan over medium heat and bring to a simmer.
Whisk in the garlic and simmer for 30 seconds.
