    Alfredo sauce forms the basis of many tasty and satisfying recipes. Classic Alfredo sauce is made of just butter, heavy cream and Parmesan cheese. Those ingredients combined with pasta make fettuccine Alfredo, an Italian favorite. Jarred Alfredo sauce is quick and easy when you want to make a nice dinner after a busy day. Besides with pasta, you can use Alfredo sauce as a substitute for white sauce in any casserole.

    Some of these recipes call for a cheesy pasta sauce. That's a white sauce that includes other cheeses, usually some form of cheddar. If you can't find jarred cheesy pasta sauce, just heat up a jar of Alfredo sauce and add a cup of shredded cheddar or colby and heat until the cheese melts and the mixture is blended.
