Garlicky Creamy Alfredo Sauce; make no mistake, with this handy dandy sauce you and your family are in for a treat + more free time to spare!
I remember when, in an effort to get rit of some heavy cream prior to expiring, my Alfredo Sauce was born. Back then it was just a plain creamy-ish (at best) sauce, missing a few too many factors to even qualify as a good meal. I-will-be-honest!
However, a couple weeks ago I was determined to change the fate of my poorly invested Alfredo Sauce. While my family and I were eating at a restaurante and I noticed that all four kids had ordered pasta with Alfredo Sauce (again!). While most times I am too busy stuffing my face with bread and olive oil, this time it hit me hard… why don’t I make some Alfredo Sauce?
That’s when THIS garlicky and deliciously creamy Alfredo Sauce was born… only to confirm (what I already knew) that garlic makes everything better and cheeeeeese, oh cheese, you are the cherry on top!
Here is why I am glad I did…
Ever since I made this sauce, we’ve been eating it non-stop! I love it how this just make my life so much easier. As easy as boiling pasta. Seriously! Because that’s all I need to do with this handy dandy Alfredo Sauce.
