Alfredo and Cheese Sauce

The Best Cheese Sauce

Here is the Alfredo and Cheese Sauce I promised and it is so good.  You’re probably going to be shocked when you see how it’s made but I’m certain that if you try it, you’ll be even more bewildered but amazed.  I will admit that I was a bit bored when I came up with this idea but when I served this up to the wife and kids, we couldn’t stop eating it.  So basically what I’ve done is taken a classic Italian Sauce recipe(French technically), Alfredo, and I’ve turned it into a true “Poor Man’s” recipe by adding an ingredient that will just blow your mind.  Which is exactly what I do here, right?  So let’s get crackin’!

Alfredo Cheese Sauce is Amazing

Believe it or not, the secret ingredient for this Alfredo Cheese sauce is Macaroni and Cheese Powder!  And as you can see from the picture above, there’s nothing poor about this recipe.  It’s rich, it’s creamy and the Fettuccine is perfectly cooked to Al dente.   The only other thing you could add to make this sauce better, honestly, is Sriracha.  I started squeezing that stuff over my Mac and Cheese a few years ago and it didn’t stop with this.  I also love this dish with Garlic Parmesan Chicken, which is my next video recipe by the way, or with seafood twist; shrimp and scallops.  Either way, I am certain you’re going to find this recipe dreadfully delightful! ūüėČ

Also be sure to Check out the Olive Gardens Alfredo Sauce if you’re needing a more detailed tutorial on the basics of this sauce.  I’m also plugging my Hawaiian Mac Salad recipe in case you need ideas for your left over Macaroni from the cheese box.  You’ll see what I mean in the Alfredo and Cheese Sauce video below.

Alfredo Sauce on your Pizza

This Alfredo Sauce can be used over pasta, as a dip or if you want to make it really interesting, try it on your homemade pizza as the main sauce under your cheese.  Chicken Alfredo pizza’s are pretty popular these days but I like to spin it a bit more with Tomatoes, roasted Artichoke hearts , and Shrimp Scampi baked right into the Alfredo, Mozzarella and provolone.  But that’s just me!  The pic above is actually my Margherita Pizza if you want to look into that recipe, CLICK HERE!
