Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce

Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce

Ready in 25 minutes

Really Good :)

"I decided to try this one out because of the addition of cream cheese. I'm not a fan of garlic powder so I let some fresh minced garlic sweat in the butter until fragrant and then added all other ingredients, fresh grated Romano and fresh black pepper. The sauce was way better than my boring bechamel based Alfredo. We tossed it on 7 cheese tortellini. My daughter love it. Going to try my seafood Alfredo with it next. Definitely not a weekly dinner kind of sauce with the cream and cheeses but yum!"

Are you making this? 
1 pint Heavy Cream
1 stick Butter
2 tablespoons Cream cheese
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese; or up to 50% more
1 teaspoon Garlic powder

Original recipe makes 1 Serving




In a saucepan combine butter, heavy cream, and cream cheese. Simmer this until all is melted, and mixed well. Add the Parmesan cheese and Garlic powder. Simmer this for 15 - 20 minutes on low. You may wish to season with a little salt and pepper. I have done this with half and half, but we prefer the heavy cream. I wouldn't try it with plain milk.



Well I finally figured out how to get that taste. Let the sauce simmer as long as you can!

Much better than anything you can get out of a jar. The cream cheese was unexpected, but I've considered adding it to jarred Alfredo sauce when I don't have time to make this.

This sauce is the best sauce ever. It tastes better than olive garden. I add cayenne pepper to the recipe for a little kick.
