Easy Alfredo Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Chef Jan54321

This is a very creamy sauce. As its name implies it is very easy...I love to do it with cooked shrimp and what ever fresh veggies I have and put it over noodles. You can use any meat you like. I cook the meat in a separate pan and pour the Alfredo sauce over when cooked. YUMMY!

This is a delicious short cut to a good Alfredo. I am a retired certified chef, so iIput it together differently, I melted the butter and added the flour to make a frothy roux, then added the cream (used 1/2&1/2) to make a white sauce, THEN added the cream cheese and parmesan. This made melting the cream cheese easy. I seasoned with white pepper, granulated garlic and a tiny pinch of nutmeg. I used it to make a white pizza with spinach chicken and mushrooms very nice!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter over low heat (do not burn or sauce will take on nutty flavor).
  2. With a whisk, mix in the cream cheese and whisk until completely combined. (At first it will seem like it won't combine, but keep stirring until it does).
  3. Add milk and flour and continue to whisk.
  4. Once it heats up and is smooth add parmesan cheese and salt and pepper and stir to combine.
  5. Let it sit for a few minute to thicken.
  6. Lower fat recipe. Follow directions above--it will be slightly thinner, but will thicken upon standing.
