What is Alfredo Sauce?
Alfredo sauce is a creamy white sauce made with Parmesan cheese, butter, and cream. It is typically served over pasta and some people, like me, like chicken or shrimp.
What Pasta do you use with Alfredo sauce?
If you are wanting to keep things low carb then be sure to try this sauce with Zoodles. If you are looking for an amazing low carb Alfredo dish, make Spaghetti Squash Alfredo with shrimp and Zoodles with Alfredo Sauce. They are both amazing dishes, but are low carb and perfect if you are wanting to cut back on your carbs.
How do you thicken Alfredo sauce?
When I am making alfredo sauce, the sauce will almost always thicken on its own. As it cooks, the alfredo sauce will thicken and become the right consistency. If you want it to thicken faster, you can add more cheese.
There are a few different ways that you can thicken your Alfredo sauce. One way is to add some flour to the sauce and stir until it is well combined. Another way is to use some cornstarch mixed with a little bit of water. You can also use a roux, which is made from equal parts of butter and flour.
How do I thin out Alfredo Sauce?
If you find your alfredo sauce to be to thick it is easy to thin out. All you have to do is add a little heavy cream and whisk vigorously. Only add a little bit of the heavy cream at a time and every time you add more cream whisk vigorously. Keep doing this until your sauce is the proper consistency.
How to Store
If you have leftover Alfredo sauce, you can store it in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days. You can also freeze the sauce for up to 2 months. To thaw, place the sauce in the fridge overnight or place it in a bowl and microwave until it is heated through.
What is the best way to reheat Alfredo sauce?
The best way to reheat Alfredo sauce is by putting it in a microwave-safe bowl and microwaving it for 30-60 seconds. You can also reheat it on the stove by heating it over low heat until it is warmed through.
What can you serve with Chicken Alfredo?
Some of my favorite sides to serve with chicken Alfredo are garlic bread or biscuits, a simple green salad, and some roasted asparagus, honey garlic roasted carrots .

They are a delicious and healthy side that pairs perfectly with this creamy chicken Alfredo dish.
