  • Melt butter in the saucepan over a low flame.
  • Increase the heat to medium/low and allow the butter solids to fall to the bottom of the pan.
  • Remove the butter solids from the bottom of the pan. Decrease the flame to low.

  • Add milk and cream stirring often.
  • Add parmesan cheese. Stir until creamy and smooth.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.


Tips and Suggestions

  • Add black pepper. This recipe loves black pepper, use it liberally.
  • Fettuccine Alfredo (the obvious use for this sauce).
  • White pizza. Try using this sauce in place of pizza sauce when you make homemade pizza.
  • Add mushrooms or fresh spinach to the sauce for tons of flavor.
  • Try either the fettuccine or white pizza and add kosher fake crab. We love this crab alfredo option for a fast breaking dish.
  • Sprinkle on some red pepper flakes to spice it up.
