Homemade Alfredo Sauce

I’m sorry I don’t have a picture of this for you all.  i made this last night, intending to take a picture of it, but I made a mistake… I turned my back on it for ONE MINUTE, and when I turned around again, my kids had eaten it all!!!  I’m not kidding.  The good news is, we all know what alfredo sauce looks like, right?  Mine looks no different from any other you’ve seen…. but wait till you taste it.  Yum city!

My family would eat this every meal, if I would let them.   It is SO good, but let’s face it, it’s fattening.  Why does it have to be fattening?  It’s so delicious.  Make some for yourself, and you’ll “see” what I mean!

Alfredo Sauce

  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • ½ cup butter (chopped for easier melting)
  • ½ cup cream cheese
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 1 Tablespoon garlic salt

In sauce pan, over medium-low heat, combine the cream, butter chunks, and cream cheese.  Heat until butter and cream cheese are melted, stirring occasionally.   Stir in the parmesan cheese and stir with a whisk until when whisk is lifted from mixture the cheese no longer sticks to it.  (Which essentially means it has melted and is incorporated).  Add garlic salt and increase heat to medium high.  Bring to a boil.  Boil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally and serve hot over your favorite pasta.
