Easy Homemade Alfredo Sauce

My Easy Alfredo Sauce is thick, creamy, and delicious and will please everyone from pasta lovers to those on low carb or Keto diets. With two cheeses to amp up the flavor, this Alfredo Sauce is the one of the easiest, tastiest sauce recipes you’ll ever make!

Super easy to serve this over pasta if that’s what you prefer! My advice is to cook your pasta (I used gluten free linguine) before you cook the sauce and then simply drain it and put the lid on the pan to keep warm.

The Alfredo Sauce cooks up quickly so you won’t need to wait if you cook the past first.


You’ll Need:


  • 1/2 cup Butter , 113g
  • 2 Cups Heavy Cream , 500 mls
  • 3 tsp Garlic , minced
  • 2 cups Parmesan Cheese , 130 g – freshly grated
  • 1.5 cup Asiago Cheese , 100 g – freshly grated
  • Salt , to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

Instructions:

Serve with Pasta Noodles

  1. If you are planning to serve with pasta it's best to start cooking that first so it's, drained, still hot and ready to serve as soon as the sauce thickens up.

Serve with Zoodles

  1. Spiralize your zucchini, one fat 7- 8 inch zucchini will usually yield 4 cups.
  2. Cut the zucchini noodles into manageable lengths for eating.
  3. Cook the 'zoodles' for 30 seconds to 2 minutes in the microwave, in 30 second bursts to avoid overcooking. You want them 'just cooked' and not soggy.
  4. Pour off any water and let them sit on kitchen paper and pat dry to absorb more water. If you fail to remove the water adequately from the noodles the excess water will dilute your Alfredo sauce, so don't skip this step.

How to Make Alfredo Sauce

  1. In a large wide skillet melt the butter over a medium heat with the garlic
  2. Add the heavy cream and warm until it's simmering for about two to three minutes, stirring all the time.
  3. Add the grated Asiago cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, and heat it until the sauce is bubbling over a medium heat, stirring all the time.
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve right away over pasta, or low carb noodles of choice.

NOTES:

Nutrition – serving size is 1/2 cup and this amount will make about 8 servings. It’s low in carbs and high in fat so perfect for Keto if you serve it with zoodles, spaghetti squash or a low carb protein such as chicken.

Thicker Sauce – if you feel like your sauce is not thick enough then it may help to simmer it in a wide heavy skillet and let the cream thicken up, and you can add more cheese too.

Cheese – you may substitute Asiago for extra Parmesan if you need to, or use Romano cheese. For this recipe you must grate your own cheese instead of buying bagged. Ready grated cheese has added starch which means it does not always melt properly in sauces and will not make a nice thick sauce.

Storage – will keep well in the fridge for 3-4 days. Reheat very gently to prevent the sauce splitting.
