Rich Creamy Alfredo Sauce

I absolutely love Alfredo Sauce and this versatile sauce is great over many things. I love this sauce with chicken and fettuccine noodles best.  Alfredo sauce is also great with shrimp and prawns, white fish, crab and even pork chops. You can take pork chops or a boneless skinless chicken breast and smother it in this sauce for a tasty main entree’. Alfredo sauce is also awesome with vegetables such as mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, or asparagus. If you want to try a great vegetarian dish just serve one of the fore mentioned vegetable over noodles with the sauce. Be careful serving to a vegan since this does have animal fat from the cream and butter in it.

Alfredo Sauce: Tips

You can add salt if you like but the Parmesan cheese should be enough to make this dish salty for most people. I usually just set some salt and pepper shakers next to the dish so that if people want to salt and pepper it then they can to their hearts content.

Alfredo sauce, or any sauce for that matter is easiest cooked over a camp stove or in my case my RV stove. Its best to use a sauce pan and make sure you cook it over a low heat so the milk does not scorch. This is one reason it is easier to cook over a stove, you can control the heat a lot easier with the stove.

I like to add mushrooms and onions occasional and since I am addicted to garlic I often put in more garlic than the recipe calls for. Its also nice to grate some mozzarella or more Parmesan cheese to sprinkle on top of your dish for an added cheesiness.  This is great served with garlic bread or dinner rolls to soak up the left over sauce on your dish. You can’t loose serving this with bread, yum!
