Homemade Alfredo Sauce Recipe

alfredo sauce

Our entire family loves this sauce as it really is the best home recipe I've found for alfredo. Since I don't eat pasta, I have this on chicken & vegetables (or even no carb shirataki noodles) for a keto-friendly low carb meal, while my family does pasta or rice even. It makes even the plainest chicken or fish seem special! And I always seem to have all of the ingredients on hand, so it's easy to whip up quickly.

Tips for making Alfredo Sauce

  •  Use quality ingredients and high fat cream (the 40% fat cream is the best!) for this recipe.
  • This recipe is funny because it's easy for weeknights but also fancy enough for company.
  • Try grinding an actual nutmeg for this recipe – you'll never want to go out for alfredo again!
  • This recipe can be doubled easily
  • Save the leftovers, even a Tablespoon of this sauce can be great the next day, although some separation could occur.

Alfredo Sauce


Serves 4


  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 6 Tablespoons finely grated parmesan cheese (not from a can)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • salt & pepper to taste


  1. In a skillet saute garlic in the butter for one minute only. Pour in the heavy cream and stir.
  2. Sprinkle parmesan cheese in one tablespoon at a time, stirring constantly.
  3. Add nutmeg, stir frequently to make sure the sauce doesn't boil. It will take 10-15 minutes to thicken.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.
