1/4 Photos of Basic Italian White Cream Sauce (Like an Alfredo or Bechamel)
This recipe is for a basic Italian White Cream Sauce (like an Alfredo or bechamel) for Pasta, Chicken, Shrimp, etc. You can add other ingredients to suit your liking, this is the basic version - goes great over Fettuccine or Tortellini... you can also add 1 teaspoon oregano or parsley to flavor. If you throw in some bacon, carmelized onion & a handful of frozen peas & serve over pappardelle it is absolutely fabulous!
