This is Olive Gardens Alfredo Sauce. Must have for any pasta dish!


3 Cups Milk
3 Cups Heavy Cream
1 Cup Parmesan Cheese; Grated
1 Cup Romano Cheese; Grated
12 Egg Yolks; From Jumbo Eggs
Salt and Black Pepper; Optional for Taste

Original recipe makes 8 Servings



1. HEAT milk and cream in a heavy bottom saucepan until it begins to simmer. Turn off heat. Slowly whip in cheese, then remove from heat.

2. PLACE egg yolks in a separate bowl and slowly whip in a portion of the hot milk and cream mixture. Slowly add egg yolk mixture back into remaining cream mixture. Place back on very low heat and continually stir until simmering. Take sauce off heat so it thickens. (This will increase temperature of egg yolks, known as tempering).

3. SEASON to taste with salt and black pepper. Serve over your favorite pasta.

I have been making Alfredo sauce for years. I came across this recipe and just had to try it. No butter and half of the heavy cream. Much healthier and absolutely delicious. It's also more economical to make. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
