Default Alfredo sauce

Any easy way to make a small amount of Alfredo sauce. I usually use about half a jar and toss the rest. Āll the recipes I have seem to make about 3 cups.

If you only want half ... then cut the ingredients in half and only make the half recipe!

The easiest recipe I know is from the new Joy of Cooking -- its part of the Fettuccini Alfredo recipe. It is heat 1 cup of heavy cream and 1 cup of Parmesan cheese. I then toss in cooked noodles (or tortellini or ...) and some cooked chicken -- yummy.

My DSIL can't have anything with gluten so I make this -- usually double or triple the recipe.

Olive garden style alfredo.....small amount.....half a pkg. Cream cheese, pat of butter, garlic powder, pepper, cream for thickness you want, then add parmesan to your liking. My family loves this.

I did not know it could be frozen. How do you use it after frozen. Do you thaw it in the fridge. Last time I bought a jar was almost $3. I felt like I was throwing $1.50 in the garbage. It surely isn't cheaper for me to make it as I'd never use the rest of the ingredients. DH avoids dairy and now so do. We don't even drink milk let alone using heavy cream.

My DD learned that recipe in a cooking class when she was 10 or 12. It is the one my kids still request when we make Alfredo

Don't forget a tiny pinch of nutmeg in your Alfredo sauce, if you're going for the real thing.

I buy two jars, cook 1" pieces of chicken with onions and garlid add the alfredo sauce. Cook linguine noodles, drain and mix in the sauce. I love it so much I eat it until it is gone. My Husband isn't as wild about it, although he does eat it too.
Our rule is if I make it or buy it we eat it. Any and all foods. We never throw out anything edible.
