If I’d had any idea just how easy it was to make delicious and creamy Alfredo sauce, I would have started making mine from scratch decades ago. We have been eating this sauce for about a year now and I love the creamy texture and delicious Parmesan taste but most of all, I love that it is SO easy to make. If you need a dinner in less than 20 minutes, this is your meal. Add some baked chicken breasts or cooked shrimp on top for a protein and you are good to go! I love to serve this with thin spaghetti but fettuccine and angel hair pasta are also favorites for this sauce.
For this sauce, I love using Stella Cheeses, With Stella cheeses you can transform any traditional dish or cheese plate into a gourmet experience. Stella cheeses are flavorful and combine old world craftsmanship with a rich dairy heritage, dating back to 1923. Make Every Day Gourmet with Stella and this amazing Alfredo sauce.
Fast and Easy Alfredo Sauce
- 8 oz cream cheese, cut into slices or cubes
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 1 Cup milk
- 1/4 Cup Stella Italian 3 Cheese Blend
- Handful of Stella Shaved Parmesan
- 1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 lb pasta (we like spaghetti or fettuccine)
Melt the butter and cream cheese together in a large pan over medium heat.
After the butter and cream cheese is smooth, add in the milk.
Whisk until the mixture is smooth again. Then add the Stella Italian cheeses, the garlic and the shaved Parmesan.
Whisk until the sauce is smooth. Continue cooking the sauce over medium heat until it is nice and bubbly. If you are adding a cooked protein to the sauce, now is the perfect time to do it!
Serve over al dente pasta with fresh shaved Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning on top.
