This is such a simple and delicious Alfredo Sauce. We use this recipe quite often. It is really easy to put together after work or after whatever we are doing during the day. It’s great that it only requires six ingredients for the sauce and then a cooked pasta to pour it over.

Sometimes, if I want some meat to go with this recipe, I will cook some breaded chicken tenders or chicken patties to serve on the side or on the top of it. We hope you enjoy this recipe and that it is helpful to you on busy nights.

Ingredients Needed For Easy Alfredo:




Whole milk

Kraft Parmesan Cheese

Salt and pepper

Pasta (or bread, if you are using it as a dip)

How to Make Easy Alfredo:

Cook the pasta of your choice according to the package instructions. While your pasta cooks, make the Alfredo sauce.

For the Sauce: In a medium sized saucepan, melt the butter on low heat and then, whisk in the flour.

Turn the heat up to medium and add the garlic, milk, salt and pepper. Stir continually and bring to a low boil-a simmer.

Add the parmesan cheese and stir until the cheese is incorporated-smooth and creamy.

Enjoy immediately over pasta or as a dip with a delicious bread! We always order Alfredo sauce as dip for breadsticks at restaurants-it’s the best.

Some Other Pasta Recipes:

Pasta with a creamy sauce is one of my favorite comfort food meals. This Broccoli Chicken Pasta is yummy and really simple to make. One of the instructions is that you boil your pasta and broccoli together in the same pot. This helps with clean up, too.

Three Cheese Italian Pasta Bake is another pasta recipes I love! It reminds me of manicotti without stuffing large pasta shells or manicotti pasta shells. Which isn’t that hard or time consuming but, it’s a fun change.

Chicken and broccoli just go together for us. This Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Pasta is a great dinner. I love that you have a vegetable already added to your meal. We try to get more than five fruits and vegetables into our diet each day but, it’s not always easy and it does not always happen. If it doesn’t, try again tomorrow.

The yummy sauce and the delicious chicken and peppers make this Chicken Fajita Pasta a family favorite. It has a great spicy flavor.

Here is another pasta dinner with chicken. Italian Chicken and Pasta is so simple. It uses breaded chicken tenders that you just have to heat up. A great idea for busy nights.

One more hot dinner pasta recipe: Cajun Chicken Pasta has been very popular on our on-line cookbook. It is fantastic and easy to make. We hope you will try some of these great recipes really soon.

Pasta Salad Recipes:

Cold pasta salads are a favorite at our house. Summer time is a favorite time to eat cold pasta salads. Not only are they delicious, you can add a bunch of vegetables to them. They also will not heat your kitchen up during the hot summer. It is nice not to have to use your oven during the hottest time of the year.

BLT Pasta Salad is a great salad for summer barbecues or anytime during the year. This recipe requires minimal ingredients and is quick to put together.

Mexican Street Corn Pasta Salad is a yummy pasta salad that is not difficult to make. It has a great Mexican flavor. This one is also great for summer barbecues or as a meal with some good bread. Pasta and bread go together well for us-love carbs.

Barbecue Ranch Pasta Salad is another salad with great flavor. Ranch is a favorite flavor along with barbecue sauce. The corn, yellow pepper, onion, jalapeño, cilantro, and black beans make this salad delicious.

Chipotle Pasta Salad uses Grill Mates Chipotle Pepper marinade seasoning packet to flavor this pasta salad. You can find it in most grocery stores and I have purchased it at Walmart, too. This salad is full of great ingredients like, tomatoes, cilantro, green pepper, red onion, black olives, corn, and black beans. The seasoning packet along with sour cream, milk, lime juice, chili powder, cumin, and garlic powder make this a flavorful and yummy pasta salad.
