I made this last night and it was quite yummy! I added strips of steak and broccoli to ours. I used a mix of Italian shredded cheese instead of the parmesan (because its what I had and cheaper). I also used penne pasta. Oh, and at the end of the sauce cooking, I added salt, pepper, dried parsley (didn’t buy fresh) and some garlic powder.
I’ve made this a few times and each time the sauce is a bit runny. You might want to keep this in mind and add some corn starch or flour to thicken it up. Oh, and I doubled the recipe to make sure we had enough for left overs!
I got his recipe from the Southern Living magazine back in February.
Creamy Alfredo Pasta
1/2 (16 oz) pkg pasta
2 cups half and half
1/3 c butter
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1.5 oz (1 cup) fresh parmesan cheese, finely grated
1 Tbsp fresh parsley
1/4 tsp salt
1. Prepare pasta according to package directions.
2. Meanwhile, cook half and half and next 2 ingredients in a large heavy non-aluminum saucepan over medium heat, whisking often, 12 min or until reduced by 1/2 (do not boil). Remove from heat.
3. Whisk in cheese, next 2 ingredients, and desired amount of pepper until sauce is smooth. Toss sauce with hot cooked pasta. Let stand 5 min before serving.
