Originally a simple combination of butter and Parmesan cheese, Alfredo sauce, created in Rome by Alfredo di Lelio in 1914, has become one of America’s most beloved pasta sauces.  Alfredo brought the sauce to the United States in 1977 when he opened Alfredo’s near Rockefeller Center in New York City.  The sauce has continued to grow in popularity since then and has evolved to include milk or cream and sometimes flour. Many versions are also spiced with salt, pepper, or nutmeg.

A popular offering at American restaurants, Alfredo sauce is easy to make at home. Though there are many ways to make the American version of the classic Italian sauce, this recipe uses only three ingredients and can be completed in one simple step; you’ll be enjoying this decadent white sauce in no time.  Simply combine heavy whipping cream, butter, and freshly-grated Parmesan cheese in a saucepan the heat it until the sauce is smooth.
