I looooooove Alfredo Sauce. Love it.
I mean, what’s not to love? Cream and cheese and yuuuuuum. It’s all that fat that makes it delicious.
It’s super easy to make, too. If you make it yourself, you can control the fat content. I used fat free half and half (Which confuses me, but whatever) and reduced fat parmesan. It was still delicious, but super low fat/low calorie!
This is one just a variation of a white sauce recipe I’ve known how to make forever. I don’t remember where I learned it; it’s just in my brain. I actually have a bunch of random stuff up there that I don’t remember learning. The weirdest have to be tying a tie and french braiding.
Anyway, on to the recipe!
Garlic Alfredo Sauce
1 Tbsp Butter
2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1 Tbsp Flour
2 Cups Fat Free Half and Half (or any cream/milk you prefer)
½ Cup Grated Parmesan
Salt and Pepper, To Taste
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the garlic and allow to cook for a few minutes.
Stir in the flour, and let cook for 2 minutes.
Slowly whisk in half and half, making sure that the flour completely dissolves. Bring mixture to a boil, and allow it to boil for a few minutes until thickened.
Remove from heat and stir in salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese. Stir until smooth.
I mixed mine with some sautéed Italian sausage, mini cheese raviolis, and wilted spinach. It was amazing!!
See? Super easy, just like I said. What are you doing still reading? Go make this, now.
