If you like creamy white pasta sauce, you will absolutely love this Olive Garden alfredo sauce recipe! It’s rich, creamy, and cheesy, and it has just the right amount of pizzazz — compliments of the bit of garlic powder stirred in at the end. 



  • Melt butter and cream cheese in a sauce pan over medium heat until completely smooth.
  • Add whipping cream and turn the heat to medium-high. Whisk together until smooth and slightly bubbly.
  • Add parmesan cheese to taste.  I use the full 8 oz but you can use less. Stir in garlic powder.


Sauce will thicken slight upon standing.
