Instructions to make Restaurant style Alfredo Sauce at Home

Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat.
Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, or until fragrant.
Add the heavy cream and bring to a simmer.
Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened slightly.
Stir in the Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.
Serve immediately over your favorite pasta.


For a richer flavor, use whole milk instead of heavy cream.
If you don’t have Parmesan cheese, you can use a combination of other cheeses, such as Gruyère, Fontina, or Asiago.
To make the sauce ahead of time, simply cook it according to the instructions and then let it cool completely. Store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. When you’re ready to serve, reheat the sauce over low heat until it’s warmed through.
