Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce

Earlier in the month I gave you a copycat recipe for Olive Garden’s salad dressing. Now, so that you can create an entire meal from Olive Garden, here is a copycat of their Alfredo sauce. This goes together in a hurry, and, if you put your pasta water on to boil when you start making the sauce, you will have dinner on the table in 30 minutes.

Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce

A seen on

 1 c. half and half

½ T. unsalted butter

½ t. garlic powder

¼ c. fresh shredded Parmesan cheese

¼ c. fresh shredded Romano cheese

¼ t. kosher salt

¼ t. fresh ground black pepper, or white

Whisk together butter, garlic, and half & half in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer (do not boil); remove from heat.

Stir in cheese, a handful at a time. Gently stir until the cheese melts before adding the next handful.

 Return pan to burner over medium heat. Season sauce with salt and pepper. Stir until cheese sauce is smooth and the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.

 Remove from heat and allow sauce to cool for 5 minutes. Alfredo sauce will thicken even more as it cools.

 Serves 2.
