Oooh dear friends, do I have an amazing recipe for you! This is one that I found long ago and was absolutely amazed with how delicious it was. It reminds me of a restaurant style Alfredo sauce and is just so so SO good! It took me some time to figure out all the most important details of this recipe (i.e. ONLY COOK THE SAUCE FOR 1 MINUTE!!)
I actually made this recipe for a good friend right after her second child was born. This dish was chosen upon suggestion of my husband (since it was SO amazing the first time we made it!). The problem was, that I had only made it ONE TIME and didn’t realize the huge importance of ONLY COOKING THE SAUCE FOR 1-MINUTE!! Needless to say, the sauce became very thick and not nice and creamy like it should be. Ahh! I still cringe at the thought of that meal (I’m so sorry friend!!) But now after making it upwards of 20+ times (because that’s how much we love it), I feel pretty confident in sharing with you the most important things to be aware of in this recipe. And in reality, they’re not difficult at all-just things to keep in mind so that all things work together to create that amazingly rich and creamy Alfredo sauce we all know and love (well, most of us anyways-I’m talking to you Sis! ;).
After learning this lesson I realized why high-end restaurants actually have a “Saucier”-you know, someone who’s only job is to make the sauce (I only know this because I had a friend who was one). Because making the sauce perfectly can be a challenge at times! Temperamental? Yes, Sauce I’m describing you….
