Best Alfredo Recipes

Alfredo is an Italian sauce made several ways. In its simplest incarnation, hot cooked pasta is tossed with cream, butter, and cheese until a sauce forms and coats the pasta. Alfredo Sauce is a velvety white sauce sometimes made with cheese and garlic. The sauce is rich and delicious, and easy to make. These recipes all use Alfredo sauce in different ways: from a pot pie to the classic Fettuccine Alfredo.

You can buy Alfredo sauce in jars or in smaller containers in the refrigerated section of the supermarket. You can also make your own; an Alfredo sauce is simply a white sauce. Whatever version you choose, you will love all of these recipes.
