This easy Alfredo sauce calls for just a handful of ingredients and comes together in about 5 minutes. Toss fettucine in this sauce or drizzle over chicken. The recipe will generously coat 1 pound of pasta, but can be stretched to 1 1/2 pounds, depending on how saucy you like your pasta.

TIPS & NOTES:

This sauce makes enough to generously coat 1 pound of pasta, but could easily be stretched to coat 1 1/2 pounds of pasta, depending on how saucy you like your pasta. 

We usually reserve 1/2 cup of the sauce for dipping breadsticks or drizzling over chicken and toss a pound of cooked pasta in the remaining sauce.

Do not use the powdery Parmesan cheese in this recipe – freshly shredded or a bag of shredded Parmesan will work best.
