Easy homemade alfredo sauce

Homemade alfredo sauce, where have you been all of my life? I found this super-easy recipe and had it over Shiritake noodles. Yummy! This will be a staple meal for me from now on.

1/4 cup butter
1 cup heavy cream
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Directions

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Add cream and simmer for 5 minutes, then add garlic and cheese and whisk quickly, heating through. Stir in parsley and serve.


I didn't even bother with chopping up garlic, I just added a sprinkle of garlic powder and some chopped dried onion to the cream before reducing.

That is the recipe that I use. I got it from allrecipes.com. I love it. I use a 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic instead of crushing my own. I also add in crab and shrimp and I don't use any noodles at all. It is so good!! I actually made this the other day.

I made it again for lunch and added shrimp and mushrooms, no noodles. Holy cow, was it good! This is my new favorite meal.

This is currently sitting in a pot on my stove with Sea Tangle noodles in it, gonna let it mingle for a bit then add some shrimp. The sauce is awesome, a little salty but I blame that on the can of generic parm I used. I can't wait!!
