Alfredo Sauce

An exceedingly rich sauce created in the early 1920s by Roman restaurateur Alfredo di Lello for his famous dish fettuccine Alfredo. Alfredo sauce is classically made with heavy cream, butter, grated Parmesan, salt and pepper. Today's renditions can include additions such as egg yolks, flour and garlic. Although this sauce was created for pasta, it's now also used to dress everything from chicken to vegetables.

This is the classic recipe. I use this as well. It is so simple to make and so tasty. It's easily ready before the pasta is cooked.

This is almost what I use. But I add garlic to the butter first and give it a bit of a saute before adding some Italian white table wine and reducing it down to half. Then the cream goes in. I add the parmesan when I add the hot pasta.

It tastes just like Alfredo sauce to me, and so easy.

It's a little bit tricky because you don't want to cook it, but I highly recommend adding an egg yolk.

I'm definitely going to try Zhizara's 1:1:1 sauce with cream cheese, too. Sounds rich and delicious!
