Quick Alfredo Sauce
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 3 cups
  • 2 cups heavy cream/heavy whipping cream
  • 1 large clove garlic, crushed
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1-1½ cups grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ tsp white pepper
  • ½ tsp salt
  1. melt butter with crushed garlic clove over low heat. Let this cook for about 3 minutes so the garlic infuses into the butter, then remove and discard garlic.
  2. Slowly add the cream to the butter, while whisking gently.
  3. Add the cheese, about 2-3 tablespoons at a time and whisk until the cheese is melted—it’s VERY important to add the cheese in small amounts while whisking, otherwise the sauce will be very grainy. It’ll still taste fine and if you don’t mind it a bit grainy, then you can add more cheese at a time.
  4. Whisk in the white pepper and salt (if salt is needed—taste first)
