Homemade Alfredo Sauce is so simple to make and tastes so much fresher than jar sauce. All you need for this delicious homemade sauce is 6 ingredients and 10 minutes! It does not get much easier than that. The ingredients are simple too. You may even have them on hand right now in your kitchen.
You will need butter, cream cheese, garlic powder, milk, Parmesan cheese and black pepper. Simple and all natural ingredients isn't it??? I love to use this Homemade Alfredo Sauce in these great recipes - Cheesy Alfredo Spaghetti Squash and Fettuccine Alfredo. I like to store my sauce in a ball canning jar and be sure to seal it correctly for longer storage.
Homemade Alfredo Sauce made with only 6 ingredients! This is my son's favorite and he says it is better than at a restaurant.
