This Alfredo sauce tastes alot like Olive Gardens. I like to dip bread sticks in it or use for Chicken fettuccine.
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 Tablespoon minced garlic (about 3 cloves)
2 cups heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic to the butter and cook for 1 minute, then whisk in the cream, salt, pepper, and cheese. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to medium/low heat and simmer uncovered for 12 to 15 minutes or until thick, stirring often. (Don't simmer at too high of heat or it will separate)
*Hint- I love using the minced garlic you can get in jars found in the produce department of most grocery stores. It's so convenient!
