I’m a little ashamed to admit this, but after two decades of cooking for my family, I had never made homemade alfredo sauce. I know, how can I call myself a food blogger?

Your family will love this quick and easy alfredo sauce. A perfect last minute dinner recipe.

Then one night we had dinner with my cousin Tami and her family. She made alfredo with grilled chicken and sausage on the side. After one bite I was hooked. I have been missing out! When she told me how easy it was to make, I got her recipe, and I have made it several times since then. A new favorite last minute dinner recipe!

This easy Alfredo Sauce proves that sometimes simple is best. An easy dinner recipe that everyone loves!

This alfredo sauce is super simple, and doesn’t take much more time than heating up a jar of alfredo sauce. But trust me, it blows that jarred stuff out of the water!

Only takes a few ingredients to make this tasty homemade alfredo sauce.

Tami makes her alfredo sauce with Kraft parmesan cheese in the green jar, and I make mine with freshly grated parmesan. Both are fantastic, so use whichever one you have on hand. (I don’t normally like the canned parmesan, but I thought it was just great in this recipe!)

Everyone loves this scrumptious pasta. Easy Alfredo Sauce is a perfect dinner recipe for hectic evenings!

I usually serve this as is over hot pasta, but it is even more amazing served with your choice of meat. Grilled chicken, Italian sausage, or shrimp would be delicious. Enjoy!
