  • 1 teaspoon garlic puree or garlic powder

Instructions

  • Cook pasta according to the package directions.

  • When the butter and cream become bubbly, add Parmesan cheese, and stir.  Turn up the heat slightly and continue to stir.  The sauce will thicken.

Recipe Tips

  • You may want to add 2 tablespoons of cream cheese if you do not like the thickness of the sauce.
  • You may omit the garlic if desired.
  • Ground white pepper adds a nice touch to Alfredo sauce.
  • While the Olive Garden does not use nutmeg in their sauce, many people like a touch of nutmeg in the sauce.
