We had dinner at our friends, the Halverson's, when we first moved here and they made this for us. It seriously takes exactly like it came from a restaurant--and I'm really picky about my alfredo. It's also really, really healthy (ya, right). But it's soooooo good and a fun splurge. I like to make it after Christmas when I have extra heavy cream lying around. My husband requests this for his birthday dinner often. It truly tastes like it came from a high-end restaurant!
1/2 C real butter
1 tsp fresh garlic
1 dash cayenne pepper
1 pint heavy whipping cream
2/3 cup fresh grated parmesan or romano cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1 lbs pasta
chopped fresh parsley for garnish (opt)
1. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, melt butter--add cream, garlic, and salt and peppers. Simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring constantly until thick.
2. Remove sauce from heat and stir in cheese.
3. Serve over hot pasta. We like to add grilled chicken.
