With school back in session and activities and homework it gets tricky to cook for the family each night.  I totally get that.  Life is so busy and isn’t going to slow down anytime soon.  So isn’t it awesome when you find a delicious meal that is on the dinner table within 30 minutes?   This is one of those meals and you need to make it tonight.  Trust me.

Because I cook so much and our family loves anything alfredo, I have been able to perfect the sauce.  I am telling you.  This is restaurant quality sauce that is full of flavor and you can make it right at home.  The alfredo sauce is literally the best part of this meal.  It is hard to find a good alfredo sauce in the jar… ( yuck!)   But this alfredo sauce has been perfected and you won’t ever want to make it any other way!

So how could I make this alfredo sauce even better?  Is that even possible??  Yes it was.  Add more cheese. 🙂

Oh my goodness.  The cheese in the sauce.  I wish I could have had a video of adding the pasta to this three cheese alfredo.  It was so melty and gooey and just coated the pasta, chicken, and broccoli so well.   I couldn’t wait to eat it!

I can guarantee this will be one of the best meals that you make.  And if you love alfredo like we do then you will make it again and again!

  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese
  • optional- shredded parmesan cheese for garnish
Instructions
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, make the three cheese alfredo sauce. In a large skillet add butter, heavy whipping cream, and cream cheese. Cook over medium heat and whisk until melted. Add the minced garlic, garlic powder, italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Continue to whisk until smooth. Add the grated parmesan cheese. Bring to a simmer and continue to cook for about 3-5 minutes or until it starts to thicken. Add mozzarella cheese and stir until melted.

  4. *when I am short on time I buy frozen broccoli and steam it in the microwave, and pre cooked chicken from the store and this delicious meal comes together in 15 minutes! I also half the recipe and freeze the other half in a casserole dish and top with extra cheese and bake it for another night.

 This is amazing!!

  1. Just wondering, when you say “I also half the recipe and freeze the other half in a casserole dish and top with extra cheese and bake it for another night.” Are you mixing it altogether them putting half in another casserole dish to freeze? Then all you do take it out and thaw it and warm it up?
    I making this more difficult then I should, and I am sorry for that.
    Thanks

    1. Lori Jones – The only thing I would do differently is add the Broccoli the night I wanted to serve it so it doesn’t go mushy.
      I just found this site, and the recipes look amazing!
      Looking forward to trying this recipe!!

  2. I made this last night using a rotisserie chicken and frozen broccoli. It was very tasty and my family enjoyed it. The sauce is very creamy and cheesy! Using the pre-made, store bought chicken and frozen broccoli made it very quick and easy! This one is a keeper.

  3. I just came across your site on Facebook and saw this recipe for Chicken Broccoli Alfredo. I must say as I am eating this right now, heaven!! This is the first time that I have made Alfredo sauce, super easy, not intimidating at all. There is nothing I would change in your recipe. Well, one thing, I only used about 3/4 of the penne box which was 16oz. I just wanted mine more saucy. So delish!! Will definitely make again!!

  4. I’ve made this a couple times now…delicious. My only changes were a bit less pasta and less parm since some in the family aren’t big fans. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. Hi this looks awesome thanks! Im always craving chicken broccli fettuccini alfredo and this recipe looks prefect. Just wondering when you freeze the other half in a casserol dish do you just cover it with aluminum foil or is it best to have one with a lid?

  6. Family doesn’t like this as leftovers. It seems that the butter separates from everything in the microwave and makes it really greasy/oily. It is FANTASTIC when it’s first made, otherwise.

  7. You are the best homemade
    home chef mother ever!!
    You are so helpful and accommodating
    when it comes to anything that involves food that tastes complicated, but you make everything so much easier and better. Thank you for your time and help.

    1. AWE!! Thank you so much! I really appreciate that! I am so happy that you enjoy my recipes and can find some that are fitting to your family too! Thank you so much for following along with me! XOXO

  8. I love the looks of your Best Alfredo Sauce Ever but I have a question regarding it. Can it be stored or does it have to be eater right away? There are only two of us and one doesn’t like anything Italian. So If I make this I would have to be able to store it for at least a week until I can eat it all. So I would really appreciate a reply as I would love to try this.

  9. Hello, I love your recipes, my favorite foods done simply! I’m not one who has their own page, I’ve just ALWAYS love to cook & bake, & my husband LOVES to eat!
    Thank you!

  10. I want to make this ahead of time an freeze the whole thing. Should I do anything different in the prep? Do you let let frozen casserole thaw or bake from frozen? What is oven temp and how long should I bake for?

  11. This sounds like an easy & delicious recipe. I’m anxious to try it. I would like to know what brand of noodles you use with the alfredo? Are they dried, frozen or bought in the fresh section? I like the thicker noodles, but the only ones I can find are in the frozen & they are too thick. I may need to make my own…. thanks!

  12. How long would it last in the freezer before reheating? Would you make it the same then just stick it in the oven frozen when you’re ready to have it? What temp and for how long?

  13. I want to make this as a second dish for Easter as several family members aren’t ham fans. Can I make the sauce ahead of time and refrigerate it a couple of days?

  14. I normally don’t comment on recipes good or bad but not this time. It was so good I HAVE to comment and say thank you. Fun to make and great tasting!

  15. Wow! Just finished making this recipe for dinner tonight and it was SO GOOD! This was the best alfredo sauce I’ve ever tasted! 🙂
