Nom Nom Nom

I love to cook, and I heart I waste a sad amount of my time looking through recipes there. I love to search for recipes, then put my own things in it that make it my own.

Kyler looooves Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo, but I confess I usually buy a jar brand of the alfredo sauce. Don't judge me. Tonight I decided to make homemade sauce!


Here's the recipe in case anyone wants to try it!

Melt 1/4 cup butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add 1 cup heavy cream and simmer for 5 minutes. Add 2 cloves minced garlic and 1 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and any seasonings you like (I added crushed red pepper, dried onion, and oregano). Whisk quickly, heating through. Stir in 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley.

If you're health conscious and want to save a few cals, you can sub/cut down on low fat butter/margarine, and milk with some cornstarch instead of the heavy cream.

It's just alfredo sauce so you can serve it anyway you want, but I served it over fettuccine with some baked chicken! Yummy.

Kyler's first bite quote-"It's good, but I like the jar brand you get better".



  1. Not your fault. The companies who make it have made a billion jars, they were able to fine-tune it pretty well :p

  2. Yummmm I LOVEEEE Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo!

  3. Me too! This kind was really good. Kyler's just nuts.
