Homemade Alfredo Sauce

Sharing with your friends!

I am the queen of thinking I have something in my pantry, when in reality I don’t. 

Case in point… 

Two weeks ago, I was making breaded chicken that was going to be served over fettuccine Alfredo.  I get everything almost cooked, go to my pantry for a jar of Alfredo sauce, only to realize there is none.Homemade Alfredo Sauce

Instead of ruining the meal by using a tomato based sauce, I quickly decided to try making homemade alfredo sauce.

Guys, it was a huge success.  It was so creamy–so cheesy–so full of Alfredo goodness–that I don’t think I’ll be buying the jarred stuff ever again.   

Yes.  Never.  Ever. 

Just in case you decide you want to break free from the chains of jarred Alfredo sauce too, and start making it from scratch, I thought I would share my recipe

Just know, that once you go scratch, you’ll never go back.  (just pretend that rhymes–for me?)

You’ve been warned…
