How To Make Alfredo Sauce With Heavy Cream

To make alfredo sauce with heavy cream is simple and easy, just with a few ingredients and 10 minutes of your time. Nutmeg is optional in these recipes.

Firstly, sautee your minced garlic in some butter. Add in your heavy cream and simmer for about 5 to 7 minutes until it gets thicker. For the fastest result Use a larger saucepan because the more surface area you have, the less time it will take.

Before adding in your parmesan cheese, reduce heat to low and add the cheese, whisking constantly until it gets smooth. Then add in your salt, pepper, and nutmeg if using. And your yummy sauce is ready for use.

Ingredients Variation

  • Cream cheese: This recipe includes cream cheese which is low carb, low protein, and high fat. The cream cheese gives this recipe a unique creamy texture.
  • Parmesan: Parmesan is added to this recipe, which makes it taste very delicious. Parmesan makes this recipe taste salty, buttery and helps thicken the sauce. A fresh Parmigiano Reggiano can go in for this recipe.
  • Heavy cream: This recipe calls for heavy cream which gives it a velvety smooth texture.


How To Make Keto Alfredo As A Pro

  • Don’t allow the cream cheese to clump by bringing the cream cheese to room temperature before using it to make your sauce. When cream cheese is too cold and the mixture is too hot, it tends to clump.
  • Heating on high heat can make the parmesan stringy instead of smooth, so before you stir in your cheese take the pan off the heat.
  • Garlic burns easily, so when adding it be careful so it doesn’t get burnt. Add in your heavy cream as soon as the garlic is fragrant.


Seasoning For Easy Alfredo Sauce

The traditional version of alfredo sauce contains nutmeg in it, but to me, it’s an optional ingredient. You can choose to add more flavors at the end of your recipe by adding in more salt and pepper to taste.

How To Store Alfredo Sauce In The Fridge

Alfredo sauce can be stored in the fridge for about a week in an airtight container. When ready to use reheat on the stove even microwaving works fine but use low to medium power to avoid separation. Alfredo sauce tends to thicken as it sits like any other parmesan cream cheese.

Can Alfredo Sauce Be Frozen?

Yes, of course, you can freeze your alfredo sauce if you want to keep it longer. Store in an airtight container before freezing or use plastic freezer bags make sure no air is remaining in the bag, you can as well label them to know how old they are. For a tasty taste, I recommend using them within a month of freezing that you can still eat it after a month.

Once your alfredo sauce is ready, serve immediately. It can go well with

  • Spaghetti squash alfredo: Alfredo sauce goes well with spaghetti squash. It is just alfredo pasta, without the carbs.
