Alfredo Sauce - Super Simple and Delicious!

I happened upon a delicously simple recipe for Alfredo Sauce at The Sushi Snob - wonderful as it is but like many people do with recipes they find I changed it up a bit for my family.

My husband will eat anything I put in front of him but if I were just cooking for him he would never eat a spaghetti type noodle again, ever. He will eat, and kind of like penne or rigatoni or even ziti but that is it - and they cannot be over cooked - mushy just grosses him out. All this to say I didn't use fettucini noodle in my dish!

Alfredo Sauce - Super Easy
1 stick butter
1 small container whipping cream ( not the fake stuff, real whipping cream ;o)
1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Optional but we really like it:
1 cup cut up orange pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
One and a half cup meat (turkey, chicken, shrimp - whatever!)

Melt butter, add whipping cream and stir to combine cooking over medium heat. Add cheese and spices stir to combine. That's it - seriously!

Now when I made this I chopped up some orange peppers I had in the freezer and saute'd them a bit in a little coconut oil, then added 1 clove minced garlic for a minute. To this I added about a cup and a half of cooked turkey - chicken or shrimp would be delicious too.

I added this to about  8 oz of cooked rigatoni - and didn't have near enough for the 8 people at the table. I will double this next time.  If you used g/f noodles this would obviously be gluten free - but you knew that right?!

My guess is it serves 4 perfectly!

  5. So, what's the story with Hubs and the noodles? Is it just too many years of kids and spaghetti, or is there a deeper back story, some childhood pasta drama?

    Hey, btw, I love you :)
