 I know that I should have shared this recipes a long, long time ago and I’m sorry. A while back, I’ve decided to collect my favorite classic sauces and share them with you. I’ve always written in recipes for a sauce in other recipes but I feel like I should share them separately. Most of the classic sauces can be used with so many different meals so why stick to one? So this week, I will share some of my favorite sauce and I will finish it off with a collection of homemade dressing recipes. Stick around and see which sauce I share each day!

My Alfredo Sauce has taken me years to perfect. I’ve tried a few different variation and this one is the best by far. I like using fresh grated Parmesan and some dry Parmesan. The combination of the two makes perfect texture and flavor.

If I had to choose, Alfredo would have to be my favorite sauce. It’s perfect with chicken, seafood, vegetable or to dip some bread sticks in it! Speaking of bread sicks, I really need to make some Copycat Olive Garden Breadsticks for this sauce. They would be amazing together!

Classic Alfredo Sauce

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Melt butter in a sauce pan on medium heat.
  2. Add minced (pressed or grated) garlic and saute until fragrant (just a few seconds). Sprinkle the flour over it and slowly add heavy cream WHILE whisking constantly (I suggest using a silicone covered whisk). Heat through on medium heat, keep stirring slowly.

  3. My hubby’s favorite is alfredo sauce and yours looks so awesome Lyuba! Love the pictures!

  4. I can’t wait to try your Alfredo recipe, this looks delicious! I saw this on the link up.

  5. Oh how I love alfredo!! I make mine a little different but I’m always looking for the latest & greatest ways to make it better. I will be putting this into the meal plan here soon. I can’t wait to try it. Thank you my friend!!

  6. Rachel Drake says:

    Oops – I believe you mean a CLOVE of garlic (not a glove). LOL!!! Will have to try this – never used sour cream in my alfredo!!

  7. Is it weird that I kind of want to lick that jar?! Looks do die for!

  8. I see you have it in a mason jar. Do you can yours? and if so how do you do it?

    • Oh no, Teri :) Here, the mason jar is just for the photo. (I also keep it in the jar in the fridge.) Since it’s freshly made and cream based, the shelf life is not that long. I don’t think we can can it.

  9. Mmmm this looks great! I have been looking for a good alfredo recipe and this just might be it!

  10. I love the way you styled this decadent sauce for the photos, makes me want to run to the kitchen!!

  11. nothing beats a classic alfredo! my favorite

  12. This MIGHT be the yummiest alfredo sauce ever….pinning for next time my kids want alfredo!

  13. Thank you for this recipe!! I can’t wait to try it out. My family loves alfredo but I don’t like the jarred kind. I’ve tried other recipes but they haven’t worked for me and I just know that yours will be awesome!

  15. I really liked this recipe. For sure I’m gonna try it because my family loves pasta/spaghetti, specially with Alfredo souce. Thank you for shering it.

  16. does this make equivalent of a 16 oz store bought jar? I am about to attempt an applebee’s copycat recipe that calls for alfredo sauce today and am thinking to make fresh sauce…

    • I’m so sorry for a late response! Yes, that is a 16 oz mason jar above and it definitely filled it. I believe there was actually about 1/2 cup more.
      Again, sorry for the late response!

    Hi! I’ve been searching for an Alfredo sauce recipie everywhere and I finally found one that looks and sounds delicious!! I just have one question, I’m making chicken fettuccine Alfredo tomorrow for 60 people, how much sauce should I make? You didn’t say how many sservings this quantity makes, please I need some help ASAP, thank you!!:*

    • Hi Bernice!
      This makes a little more than a 16 oz jar. That is a 16 oz mason jar in a photo and there was a little leftover in a pot.
      60 people, of goodness! I don’t think I’ve fed a crowd like that before. May be double the recipe, so you will have 2 to 2 1/2 jars.
      Good luck!!
      Thank you!

  19. Bernice Sandoval says:

    Thank you for your prompt reply, I appreciate it! I forgot to also ask, how much chicken and pasta do you suggest I use? I’ve never fed so many people before either, I’m kind of going crazy just thinking about it! Lol

    • Hmmm,
      Well if it’s chicken with pasta, pasta will be pretty filling so I would estimate a cooked and sliced chicken breast to serve 2 people (depends on your budget and how much you like them :D , may be even 3). Check pasta box and, in nutrition box, it should say how many servings are in the box. That could be a good way to calculate how many boxes you will need. Also, take other food in consideration. Will there be appetizers, salads, bread or desserts? If yes, there will be other food to fill them so you can even stretch that a bit more. I would also triple the sauce recipe because it’s pretty heavy and filling but relatively cheap to make, at least in comparison with chicken. Pasta and sauce will be much cheaper than chicken and more filling.

  20. Made this Alfredo sauce tonight — it was delicious. So easy and restaurant quality! My family loves it!

  21. I just loved the Alfredo sauce, as did my children. I have been on your site for hours at a time today. I have been looking for a delicious peanut butter cupcake recipe along with a peanut butter frosting, can you help me out…
