Alfredo Sauce

I can't believe I haven't posted this recipe for Alfredo Sauce before. It's not exactly healthy, but it is delicious! I usually serve it with linguini and some diced chicken or grilled shrimp. My fam also loves it over manicotti stuffed with chicken and mozarella (bind it with one egg). This is enough sauce for 8oz of linguini or double the recipe for a 9x13 pan of manicotti. No pics this time because... well, we ate it all!

1 stick butter (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup shredded parmesan (I've found that the kroger brand of parmesan works as well as fancy stuff from the deli- but I'm not exaclty a parmesan expert)
  • white pepper to taste (can sub black pepper)
  • Place all in a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Whisk until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth. Keep a close eye on it so the bottom doesn't burn.

    Serve immediately as sauce will start to separate.

    Toss in ideas: grilled shrimp, diced chicken, fresh tomatoes
