In an ongoing push to “Look! Something shiny!” I continue to share my happiness regarding the versatility of white sauce, and I have just one question: Are you looking for an easy alfredo sauce?
Take the basic white sauce and add a few extra ingredients, and you’re covered!
This alfredo is delicious and easy. Thickenthin is not a necessity for this recipe, since the cheese helps to thicken the sauce.
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
1 tsp arrowroot (optional)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 tsp pepper
1 clove garlic, minced (optional)
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
In a saucepan over medium/low heat in a saucepan, melt butter. Add Thicken/Thin Not Starch, stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbly.
Remove from heat. Add cream, garlic and pepper. Return to heat and bring to a simmer, stirring often. Remove from heat. Add cheeses. Return to heat just until cheeses are liquid, 3-5 minutes.
Makes 1.5 cups alfredo sauce.
