Perfect Alfredo Sauce

I've been working on making the perfect alfredo sauce and I think this is it. I can't tell the difference between this and Olive Garden's, and neither could anyone I've served it to. Great on a white pizza. Enjoy!



  1. 1
    Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium/low heat.
  2. 2
    Add the garlic, cream, white pepper and bring mixture to a simmer.
  3. 3
    Stir often.
  4. 4
    Add the Parmesan cheese and simmer sauce for 8-10 minutes or until sauce has thickened and is smooth.
  5. 5
    When sauce has thickened add the Mozzarella cheese and stir until smooth. STIR FREQUENTLY.
  6. 6
    While the sauce cooks, boil noodles.
  7. 7
    Place pasta on serving plates and spoon sauce over pasta.
