Alfredo Sauce REC

Being new I thought I would get started by posting my favorite sauce recipe.

1 cube unsalted butter
1 pint heavy cream
1 clove of chopped garlic
1 cup loosley pack grated Pecorino Romano
Pinch or two of cayenne

Melt butter in a sauce pan and fry garlic quickly. Reduce heat, add cream and cayenne. Bring to a soft boil and reduce sauce by 1/4.

Remove from heat and stir in the Pecorino Romano.

Serve over your favorite pasta.

This is a very simple sauce but there are a few things that make it foolproof.
  • Grate the cheese as fine a possible. I use a microplane. This will ensure the sauce is creamy smooth.
  • If all of the cheese does not melt you can put it back on the heat, but do not boil. It will curdle and resemble something like tapioca.
  • Good Pecorino is a must. Regiano to me is too salty for this sauce.
  • For a really good sauce add some butter broiled shrimp just prior to serving.
