The Best Homemade Alfredo Sauce Ever!

The most creamy and delicious homemade alfredo sauce that you will ever make!   This is a tried and true recipe and you will agree that it is the best recipe out there! homemadealfredo2

I just had to post my favorite alfredo recipe that I have created here on the blog.   There are a few secret ingredients that set it apart from all of the rest.  If there is one thing I can always count on my family to eat it is my homemade alfredo sauce over pasta.  We recently had some company over for dinner and I made these Chicken Bacon Garlic Alfredo Roll Ups and they always are a huge hit!

This alfredo sauce is thick and creamy and the flavor is out of the world.  It is restaurant quality that you can make right at home.  It has delicious garlic flavor and italian seasonings.  I like to add cream cheese to my alfredo for that extra creamy flavor and texture.  This alfredo sauce always gets raved about whenever I make it!


This alfredo sauce comes together pretty easily and you will never go back to the jarred alfredo sauce again!  Ick!  This alfredo sauce is awesome on top of just about any pasta but is also delicious used as a dip or even spread on pizza.


I think this sauce is even better than any restaurant that I have been to and the best part is that you can make it yourself!   It is thick, creamy, and rich and the perfect sauce on top of your favorite pasta.

I know that you will quickly agree that this is the BEST!  This will be a recipe that you make again and again, just like I do!

    1. Hi Margrett,
      Thanks for the great question. I am so glad that you like it. I would suggest to not use whole milk as it does not tend to thicken as well and it will alter the taste. I hope this helps! Thanks so much for following along with me!

  1. I love this recipe ! The Alfredo came out so good , I made lasagna roll ups . Will definitely be making my own sauce from now on ! Thank you so much ! I am in LOVE !

    This is the best Alfredo sauce I have ever eaten bar none. And it’s so easy to make! Why anyone would buy jar or any of the other gourmet sauces that have water or other ingredients is just not common sense. I made this to go over some crab & shrimp raviolis and it was the perfect sauce.

  3. I was curious about what kind of Parmesan cheese? I know it says grated is that like the kraft grated In the green container? Cause last time I made Alfredo sauce the recipe called for grated so that’s what I used and it was super grainy.

    Love this, I always have to double the recipe, as we put chicken and broccoli in the fettuccine and every one lives the sauce!
