Alfredo sauce is a rich, thick cream-based sauce with flavorful Parmesan cheese and delicate butter. It is widely used in classic Italian and American cuisines. You won’t believe how versatile is this sauce. Of course, you have your classic Fettuccine Alfredo. However, I have other perfect options where you can use this easy but at the same time delicious sauce.

If you wish to add extra creaminess to your salad of choice instead of the dressing in the recipe. Moreover, what a perfect dip for potato wedges or squid rings, as the flavor it adds will be so distinct. It will be a perfect substitute for sour cream or plain hard cream as the ingredient in different types of recipes (as casseroles, pizzas, roasted vegetables, recipes with fish or meat).

Here are my ideas of recipes where you can use Alfredo sauce instead of other creamy ingredients:

Alfredo Sauce Ingredients:

Alfredo Sauce Ingredients

  • 200 ml half-and-half cream;
  • 50 g parmesan;
  • 20 g butter, unsalted;
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to your taste.

How to make homemade Alfredo sauce:

  • Half-and-half cream should be at room temperature for the recipe. Take it out of the fridge in advance and let it sit on the counter at least for half an hour.
  • Put a skillet on medium heat and melt butter. Make sure not to burn it (if you have a strong stove lower the heat to a minimum).

Melt butter

  • Pour cream to melted butter in the skillet and wait until liquid starts boiling. If you still have the heat on medium, lower it. Therefore, that cream will be gently simmering.

Pour cream

  • Keep stirring cream constantly while you are cooking. Wait until it thickens. Add salt and pepper.

Add salt and pepper to the skillet

  • Shred parmesan cheese with a fine grater and add it to the skillet with thickened cream. I like to grate cheese immediately before adding to the dish. I think it prevents parmesan from losing its rich aroma.

Add grated cheese

  • Keep skillet on the minimum heat until cheese fully melts. Do not forget to stir to prevent our sauce from sticking and burning!

Stir while cooking

  • Let the sauce cool down a bit before serving! Enjoy!
