Homemade Alfredo Sauce Recipe

Alfredo is one of our favorite dinners around here but most classic alfredo sauces leave me feeling completely weighed down. Plus they don’t tend to reheat well.

So my version uses milk in place of half of the heavy cream, and instead of using a full stick of butter I’ve found 3 Tbsp is just enough to keep it rich and creamy. And since I’ve made these adjustments it’s thickened up with just a hint of flour.

Then the one thing I choose not to be skimpy on in this recipe is the parmesan cheese, because alfredo sauce is all about that parmesan! I also like to add 1 clove of garlic (sometimes 2) because who doesn’t love garlic? But if you’d prefer you can omit it altogether.

This is just makes one of those dinners that is 100% comforting and satisfying and seems almost too good to be true! It’s perfect for long busy days and weekends too. Any day of the year is a good day for fettuccine alfredo!
