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!

Garlicky Creamy Alfredo Sauce

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?

  1. Alfredo Sauce is something we don’t really know over here in Belgium! On the other hand when I read about it, it makes me think about the delicious cheese based sauces we have over here and I think I might like this sauce too! As you say garlic makes everything better! No time to waste ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Oh, I t think you would like this! It’s amazing what garlic does… and cheese, no words there. I bet your cheese sauces are fantastic, hmm… Thanks!

    1. Hi Christa! I haven’t tried freezing this recipe yet. It goes so quickly at my house Lol. However I can’t imagine it not freezing well, like most sauces do.

      1. I make a double or triple batch and freeze using an extra large ice cube tray. Then I have individual servings which is perfect for packed lunches in a thermos!

      2. That’s a brilliant idea! Thanks for trying my recipe and taking the time to write your feedback ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Lisa, unfortunately my recipe plugin does not support the nutrition fact label but you can find a nutrition generator on google. Just copy and pasta the ingredients. Sorry about that

  2. I have been searching for a garlicky Alfredo sauce for a few days. This recipe caught my eye for the amount of garlic it uses and looking fairly simple. I decided to give it a test run in the afternoon in case I screwed it up Iโ€™d have time to fix it before dinner ๐Ÿ˜‚. Turns out I did not mess it up and, in fact, itโ€™s soooo delicious that Iโ€™m now mad we have to wait for dinner time!!!

    1. That’s really great, I am so happy to hear! I make this sauce all the time for my kids, they literally lick their plates clean ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hi Amber, I have never tried canning this recipe but I have kept it in air-tight jar in the fridge for up to 7 days

  3. Easier than any Alfredo recipe I’ve ever tried and also tastes better! So quick, so easy, and so good! Now if only it were calorie free…
