  • 1 stick or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese


  • Combine butter, whipping cream and cream cheese in a saucepan on top of the stove cooking and stirring over medium heat until melted.
  • Add remaining ingredients and stir until sauce thickens and all the cheese is melted and smooth. Takes about 3 minutes.
  • Serve over your favorite pasta.


I like to sprinkle some fresh or dried basil over the pasta before serving. Makes about 3 1/2 cups of Alfredo sauce.
