Homemade Alfredo Sauce
I never thought making homemade alfredo sauce was this easy. I love.love.love alfredo sauce. So excited now that I gave in and made it.
What triggered me to make it was my daughter and I were putting our heads together on how to change up the ever famous Green Bean Casserole. We wanted to substitute the mushroom soup with alfredo sauce. I could have easily bought the jar at the grocery store, like I always do, but thought this would be a good time for me to break down and figure it out.
There were several recipes we went through. I alleviated some ingredients and added some of my own. One of the ingredients you might want to use in yours is garlic powder. I can’t eat garlic anymore with my belly issues, so I didn’t use it. If I could have garlic, I most definitely would have included a little bit.
You can use this sauce with sooo many recipes. A couple dishes that I use the sauce for is Chicken Alfredo and on pizza in lieu of the pizza sauce.
What do you use Alfredo Sauce on?
UPDATE: Wanna see the Green Bean Casserole we used this on?
