You guys, I finally started cooking homemade meals again. It has been a while. I have been taking the super quick way out. A lot. It was just easier. But one of my latest goals was to get back in the kitchen and cook more. That means more recipe posts! One of my favorite weekday meals is pasta. I love switching up tomato based pasta meals with Alfredo. You can change it up however you want, but I typically serve it with chicken or just broccoli.
Alfredo sauce is pretty simple really. I’m not talking about out of the jar here people. I’m talking fresh, homemade Alfredo sauce! You really don’t need that many ingredients and it tastes SOO much better.
I like to pour the Alfredo sauce on top of fettuccine noodles but you can use any noodles you want. If you feel like making homemade noodles too, more power to ya. I did the box kind here but yes I love the homemade noodles even more.
Alfredo sauce should be thick and creamy. It starts with a base of butter or a fat then it is thickened with heavy cream. Then add spices and cheese and you have yourself an Alfredo sauce. Get the full recipe below.
The little guy sure had fun with it too. My kiddos eat what we eat. Sometimes they like their food separated but I think teaching them young to try different foods keeps them from getting too picky.
