“From This is an updated version of the "Olive Garden" Alfredo Pasta recipe. This recipe includes more grated Parmesan cheese and fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. You'll find this sauce thickens easier and has an improved Olive Garden taste. Just be sure not to crank the heat up too high when simmering the sauce or it could break, resulted in a not-so-creamy, curdled Alfredo.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium/low heat.
  2. Add the garlic, cream, pepper and salt, and bring mixture to a simmer.
  3. Turn the heat down if the mixture reaches a rapid boil or it could boil over.
  4. You just want a simmer.
  5. Add the cheese, and continue to simmer sauce for 8 minutes or until thick.
  6. While sauce cooks, bring 4 to 6 quarts of water to a boil and add the pasta.
  7. Cook pasta for about 12 minutes or until done, then drain it.
