Alfredo Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by mrparasyte

This recipe is my personal Alfredo sauce recipe which I derived from my time working in a restaurant kitchen. It's thicker than most and doesn't separate a whole lot when reheating. When stored in the fridge it tends to solidify but reheating is done easily in both the microwave or a saucepan. It's great for dipping or serving over pasta. As far as the cheese goes I prefer the Sargento Artisan Parmesan to other brands for the flavor it gives. I do not recommend unsalted butter or margarine for this recipe. If the sauce is too thin for your liking simply add more cheese, to thick add more cream or some milk. I sometimes will add a teaspoon or so of minced garlic. Mixing in steamed broccoli and cooked chicken makes a nice touch too.

I made half the recipe. It was a job shredding the fresh parmesan but it was worth it. The taste it gives to the sauce is wonderful. We'll do this recipe again. Thanks mrparasyte :) Made for New Kids on the Block tag game
