Looking for an easy and delicious Alfredo Sauce recipe? This is IT! Rich & creamy - this will taste better than your local Italian restaurant! And so easy to make!

I can't believe that it's taken me this long to share my Easy Alfredo Sauce Recipe! I got this recipe from my brother-in-law, and have been tweaking it ever since. It is so velvety smooth and creamy – the PERFECT Alfredo Sauce. Oh – and I should mention that there is a secret ingredient in this recipe… read on for that 🙂

Here's the play-by-play:

Butter and GarlicFirst, melt a half stick of butter in a sauce pan with some olive oil, and add a clove of chopped or pressed garlic. Saute the garlic for just a minute or two, and then add the milk to stop the garlic from cooking.

Cream CheeseOk – NOW here's the secret ingredient – cream cheese! It makes it smooth, a little thicker, and adds a touch of sweetness. SO. GOOD. You might want to chop it into smaller cubes before you place it in the pan so that it melts faster.

Prime Cheese and SpicesGo ahead and add all the remaining ingredients, and slowly bring to a boil over low-medium heat.

Finished Sauce

It helps to use a wire whisk while heating to break up the cream cheese and mix in the parmesan cheese. Once it starts to bubble and it smooth, it is ready to serve!
