Once I realized how easy it was to make fresh, homemade Alfredo sauce, I never bought a jar of the store-bought stuff ever again.  Not only does homemade Alfredo taste WAY better, it’s also simple to make taking just a few minutes, with just few simple ingredients!  Who knows how many ingredients the jarred store-bought stuff has?!

Step 1: Over medium heat, melt the butter and add flour in a non-stick skillet.  Yes, this does have a full stick of butter (it’s not the lightest sauce, but definitely flavorful!). You’ll add the flour as soon as the butter is completely melted.  You’ll then use a whisk to combine the butter and flour.  Let this cook for a couple minutes, while whisking continually.

Step 2: Add half and half and cheese.  Once the butter and flour have cooked, you can then add the half and half.  Just start with 1 cup of half and half, and then add the remaining 1/2 c. at the end.  Whisk the half and half with the butter mixture until it thickens – about 2 minutes or so.  Once you feel it has thickened, you can then add the grated Parmesan cheese.

Step 3: Melt the cheese, add spices and remaining half and half.  While continually whisking, stir the sauce until the cheese is nearly melted.  Add the pepper and nutmeg.  Lastly, add the last of the half and half and whisk about one minute longer until smooth.  For a thinner sauce add more half and half.  For a thicker, cheesier sauce, add less.
