Recipe Preparation Level: easy
Susan's Alfredo Sauce
1/2 stick butter
4 cloves minced garlic (You can also use the pre-chopped kind that comes
in a jar)
1 cup heavy cream
4 T chopped parsley
to taste cayenne pepper (makes the sauce turn pink)
2 t freshly ground pepper
to taste salt
1.5 cups shredded Asiago cheese (or freshly shredded parmesan)
cooked pasta of choice
Boil the water for the pasta (I've been using angel hair, and I'm terrible at
measuring it; the sauce is enough for 2-3 servings). Add pasta when it starts
boiling. Melt the butter in a large pan, saute garlic briefly, but don't let
it brown. Add cream, parsley, cayenne pepper, black pepper and salt. Stir
with a whisk to combine and cook until heated through and it starts to
thicken. Gradually add cheese and stir (once you add the cheese, you should
stir with something besides a whisk).
When the pasta is al dente (firm, not tough, but not completely soft), drain
and add it to the sauce. Stir, making sure pasta is coated and cook gently
until the sauce has absorbed into the pasta somewhat. Serve topped with a
little extra cheese and parsley.
