Homemade creamy Alfredo sauce with hints of garlic.

Creamy Garlic Alfredo Sauce is a delicious staple in my house. We are pasta lovers through and through. My kids love pasta (especially, Red & White Pasta) and the hubs and I do, too. 🙂 This sauce I’m sharing today is one of the easiest and BEST versions of homemade Alfredo. It beats the stuff in the bottle by far!

This Garlic Alfredo sauce is creamy, dreamy Alfredo heaven, with just a hint of garlic. I make it ALL the time, because it’s so easy and so delicious!

  1. this looks so good! creamy and delicious indeed. we also love that red and white pasta. sometimes I add chicken to it!

    1. Yes! After you’ve cooked it, cool to room temperature. Pour in a large freezer-safe ziplock bag, up to 3 months. Thaw in refrigerator and place in a saucepan over low heat to warm.
