Homemade Alfredo Sauce Recipe

This homemade alfredo sauce recipe was passed on to me by a friend, after serving it for dinner. It’s rich and indulgent, and oh so good!

So, what do you serve for a black and white dinner party you ask? Black and white pasta with my homemade Alfredo sauce recipe of course! This is a delicious well-balanced meal and ties in perfectly with the color theme I created for my Apothic White shoot from yesterday.

I found black and white bowtie pasta at HomeGoods and made homemade Alfredo sauce to pour over it. I got this recipe last year as I was visiting my best friend from college. She served it for lunch and told me how easy it was to make. I have to admit I wanted to pour it into a bowl and eat it like soup! It’s so good!

The consistency is thinner than what you get in a jar so keep that in mind. In fact, you might find it easier to serve if you toss the pasta and sauce all together in one big bowl before dishing it out onto plates. TIP: this sauce was so delicious drizzled over the asparagus too!

Homemade Alfredo Sauce recipe

  • 12 ounces Heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 cups {about 5 ounces} Parmesan cheese, finely shredded
  • 1/2 cup {1 stick} butter

In a medium sauce pan, over medium-low heat, combine cream and butter until hot and bubbly. Let cook until reduced slightly.

Add shredded cheese and stir until melted.

Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes to thicken.

Ladle over freshly cooked pasta, or add pasta to sauce and toss to coat.

Top with freshly ground pepper to taste.

To round out the meal, serve blackened tilapia and asparagus.  If you can find white asparagus that would be even more apropos! Make my easy black & white parfaits for dessert.

To make the tilapia use:

1 1/2 pounds tilapia filets 

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

salt and pepper to taste

Season the fish with chili powder and salt and pepper to taste. Sautee in a pan over medium heat for about 5-6 minutes each side, or until cooked through and flakes with a fork.

Have a great day!
