Alfredo sauce

Standard

My hubby is a meat and potatoes kind of guy. Fortunately, from time to time, he doesn’t mind indulging in a little pasta. One of my favorites is fettucini chicken alfredo. Thanks to the sauce, my hubby really likes it as well. I received this recipe from a co-worker in Tampa, Florida. I was amazed at how easy it is. (you can also substitute sharp cheddar cheese for the parmesan and make a yummy cheese sauce for things like broccoli.)

Fettucini alfredo with garlic bread

Fettucini alfredo with garlic bread

Ingredients:

  • 2 T. butter
  • 2 T. flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup shredded parmesan cheese (or Italian cheese blend)
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • garlic salt to taste

Melt butter over low heat. Blend in flour and salt. Add milk all at once. Whisk constantly until thickened. Add parmesan and stir until melted. Add garlic to taste. (If mixture is too thick, add a little milk until desired consistency is achieved.)

We serve this over fettucini noodles and grilled chicken (I use Italian seasoning on the chicken.) Of course, don’t forget the garlic bread! Buon Appetito!

  1. Sounds yummy! I’m gonna try it 🙂 love saving money whenever possible on making homemade 🙂 to make gluten free you can substitute the flour for cornstarch incase anyone needs that 🙂 the equation is 2tbsp cornstarch to 3tbsp flour. So maybe do 1.5 tbsp of cornstarch for this 🙂
