Well, Mike, that comment about me having bottled Alfredo sauce in my refrigerator really hurt so tonight I got out my recipe for homemade Alfredo sauce just to remind myself how good it was. Watch out ladies, it is not low fat! :) If anyone has a lower fat Alfredo sauce recipe, let me know! This one is delicious!
Homemade Alfredo Sauce
12 Tbs. butter
1 1/3 c. heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp salt
Dash of pepper and nutmeg
2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese (I have also used the refrigerated pre-shredded Parmesan and it has turned out fine)
Fresh chopped Parsley
2 chicken breasts, cut into thin slices
Over medium heat, combine butter and whipping cream until mixture bubbles. Continue cooking 2 minutes more. Add salt, dash of pepper and nutmeg. Remove from heat, stir in the Parmesan cheese until smooth. May return to stovetop to help smooth out cheese, but do not let it come to a boil. Toss with pasta and chicken and sprinkle fresh parsley over top.
This recipe makes enough sauce to cover one box (12 oz.) of pasta.
