Alfredo Sauce

Preparation time:  about 45 minutes. Number of servings: one quart, about 10 servings. Use 4 ounces of sauce for every 6-7 ounces of cooked pasta.


  • 1 quart heavy cream
  • 1/4 pound butter (1 cube)
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons garlic, chopped
  • 1 cup white wine (chardonnay works well)
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


  • In a 2 1/2 - 3 quart sauce pan  over medium-low, heat the heavy cream to 170 degrees F, using a thermometer to be accurate and stirring frequently
  • In the meantime, melt the butter in another sauce pan and add the wine, garlic and salt and pepper and bring to a boil over medium heat
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until the volume is reduced by half
  • At this point, add the wine mixture to the heated heavy cream and stir for 15 more minutes (do not boil) 

That’s it! You've completed a masterpiece!

If you are using the sauce immediately, simply pour or ladle sauce over hot pasta in a pasta bowl and garnish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

However, if you do not use the Alfredo Sauce immediately, you must refrigerate it in a shallow pan (2” deep - maximum) uncovered until cold.  Once cold, you can transfer it to a deep container. This is the method you should use to cool all your hot liquid food items.

When you are heating a cold sauce, stir the sauce all the way to the bottom of the pan to evenly distribute the seasoning before using.

To reheat: use 4 ounces of sauce for each serving of 6-7 ounces of cooked pasta. Place the sauce in a 10 inch skillet over medium heat until it comes to a simmer. Add the 6 ounces of pasta for every 4 ounces of sauce you are simmering. Cook until the pasta and sauce are heated through.
