Got this from a former Olive Garden manager, so it should be the real thing.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In double boiler, melt butter. Add garlic--do not let brown. Add pepper, milk, and cream. Bring up to 185 degrees.
  2. Stir fast with whisk while shaking in parmesan. Continue whisking until it's a smooth sauce.
  3. For thicker sauce, add more parmesan or even grated romana.
  4. (Does not reheat well and is thrown out after three hours at the "Garden".).

Loved this. The second time i made this, I did end up using a combination of Romano and parmesan, and used a bit more than called for.

No! This didn't seem right at all. No sure what I did wrong but no matter how much cornstarch I added it was super runny. Had a problem with the milk too-doesn't say how much?

Just a question really. I noticed that the directions call for milk, but none is mentioned in the ingredient list. How much is needed (if any)?
