Homemade Alfredo Sauce

This is almost as easy to make as opening a jar of sauce but so much better. It takes less than 10 minutes, it’s rich and creamy and a perfect compliment to your favorite pasta. The best part is, it’s completely homemade! You may never buy a jar of alfredo sauce again.






Makes about 1 1/2 cups


  • 4 Tbsp (1 stick) butter
  • 1 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp cold water
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Slowly whisk in the heavy cream.ย Cook, over medium heat until simmering.
  2. Combine the cornstarch and cold water in a small bowl or cup, whisk into the cream mixture.
  3. Cook, whisking constantly, until sauce thickens, 2 -3 minutes.
  4. Take off heat, and whisk in the Parmesan cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
