Alfredo Sauce

So, Becky and I are avid "sweepers". For those who don't know what that is, we spend a lot of time entering giveaways hosted by different bloggers and websites. While doing one of these giveaways I discovered a recipe for Creamy Chicken Penne. Well I left it at home when going to get groceries and decided I'd try making some alfredo. Becky looked it up on her phone (savior :)) and we got the ingredients. I was very excited to try it!


The ingredients were:

  • 5 tablespoons sweet butter
  • garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper (doesn't matter if you use black)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
 I followed it exactly and to be honest it didn't make a lot. Probably sauce for 4. I like my pasta's saucy so I would probably double it if cooking for more people. 


It was DELICIOUS!


First you melt the butter, and add in the garlic.

After that cooked a minute I added in the cream and parmesan cheese. Melt the cheese and simmer for 8-10 minutes until smooth and thick.

When its simmered the 8-10 minutes you can add in the motzerella cheese and melt that and simmer again a few extra minutes until smooth. I also let it set a moment to thicken a bit more.


I had boiled up some broccoli and sauteed some chicken in butter and minced garlic, until browned. I boiled fettuccine noodles and cut up the chicken and put it on my plate of noodles, put on some broccoli and poured on some sauce. It was seriously divine!
