Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce is a rich, creamy sauce that you can make at home. This recipe is one of the first ones we attempted to recreate, it’s one of my favorite recipes of all time. This recipe is simple: butter, cream, cheese, and a little bit of patience—and everyone will think you are a five-star chef.
When ever people ask me what my favorite recipe is, I have to tell them it is the Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce. This is the recipe that started my whole journey into copycat recipes. I went to high school in a very rural area. When I say rural, I mean in the middle of nowhere, for me, nowhere was Coldspring, Texas. The nearest Olive Garden was about 1 hour away. It was a treat to go there.
When I was in high school, I had to check books out of the library to read and learn new recipes. This was a recipe I continually tried over and over. They really serve up a very basic Alfredo sauce, and while that doesn’t take away from the recipe, it just means you can make this recipe very simple, and it is naturally gluten-free.
I hope you enjoy this version of my Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce. Be sure to check out my many other recipes from the Olive Garden.
