Ingredients for Nancy’s Alfredo Sauce

  • Garlic, Fresh or Powdered
  • Pepper
  • White Pepper (optional)
  • Onion Powder
  • Parsley, Dried or Fresh (Use Sparingly)
  • Salt
  • Table or Whipping Cream: 1 pint
  • 1/2 n 1/2 One Quart
  • Real Butter (do not use margarine) One to Four Sticks, depending on the size of the batch you are making.
  • Parmesan Cheese (Fresh is better for you, but I also use powdered as well sometimes.)
  • Italian Cheese Blend (Again, I do use powdered blends, but usually I try to go with fresh cheeses.
  • Plant-based Protein Powder (This is optional, but if you are following the core program, you should really consider giving it a try, because it brings added value to your sauce and helps you to increase the protein gram count in the dish.)
  • Water: You will add this last, just to thin the sauce down a little. Again, the amount of water used will depend on how large a batch you are making.


Alfredo Sauce Cooking Tips

Heat the ingredients slowly to avoid scorching, or burning the sauce.

Add spices a little at a time.

Stir frequently while heating, but stir constantly after the sauce gets hot and while adding water until it reaches the desired thickness.
