Sauces & Stuff
Made with fresh cheese and seasonings, rich and creamy decadence defines this homemade Alfredo Sauce.
Test Kitchen Tips
Use Parmigiano-Reggiano rather than Parmesan, and grate it yourself. It melts better and prevents the sauce from becoming gritty.
For the smoothest sauce, grate the cheese as fine as possible in a food processor using the regular blade.
Heat cream, garlic, and nutmeg in a saucepan over medium-low until steaming. Whisk in butter until completely melted.
Add Parmigiano-Reggiano and increase heat to medium. Cook sauce until thickened, whisking constantly, 20 minutes. Discard garlic, then season sauce with pepper.
