Homemade Alfredo Sauce Recipes

Amaze your family with these delicious Alfredo sauce recipes. Start with the basic recipe and work your way up to your own creations. It's amazing what you can do with this sauce. Use it to top fettuccine, dip bread sticks, or as a pizza sauce. First, let's cover the basic recipe, then we'll "get crazy with the spices".

Alfredo Sauce

Basic Alfredo Sauce


1 1/2 Tablespoons butter
1/2 cup flour
3 cups milk or half & half
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1-2 cloves garlic (mashed)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Tip: If you don't have fresh garlic, 1/8 teaspoon of garlic powder can be substituted for 1 clove garlic. So, use between 1/8 and 1/4 teaspoons of garlic powder.

Tip: I often use skim milk to make a low fat version of the sauce. However the more fat in the milk, the creamier the sauce will be. Restaurants usually use whole milk, half & half, or a combination of whole milk and half & half.


Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat. Stir the flour into the butter. Add a little milk and stir until the mixture is very smooth; Continue this process until you have added all of the milk and the mixture is smooth.

Tip: When cooking milk, always stir it. It burns very easily. Also, the heavier your pan the easier it will be to not burn your milk. Always cook on medium heat, not high.

Add Parmesan cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, on medium heat until desired thickness is reached (remember that it will thicken a little more after you take it off the stove).

Advanced Alfredo Sauce

Don't let the title fool you...advanced does not mean hard. We'll still make this easy.

Use one or more of the following tips to make this your own recipe of Alfredo sauce.

 • Spice it up. Add more or less salt or pepper. Add other spices such as Italian seasoning, thyme, oregano, parsley, Basil, etc. These spices are also great for adding color.  

 • Add a little something. Serve it over noodles (such as fettuccine) and add steamed broccoli, shrimp, or grilled chicken.

 • Of course, top it with Parmesan cheese.

 • Use the sauce to make an Alfredo pizza.

 • Use the sauce as a bread stick dip (like Olive Garden does).

These are just a few ideas for you. Use your imagination and make this your own recipe. Your family will love it!
