Most alfredo sauces you see are quite thin and creamy but that doesn’t necessarily have to be the case. With a few minor tweaks you can get a thicker, richer cheesy alfredo sauce.

Cheesy Alfredo Sauce Ingredients
While much cheesier than our other alfredo sauce recipe, this one still uses only a few simple ingredients.
You’re going to need:
- Fresh garlic
- Heavy whipping cream
- Parmesan cheese
- And a bit of cream cheese
How to Prepare Extra Cheesy Alfredo Sauce
In a saucepan, combine three quarters of a cup of butter with three cups of cream and three or four tablespoons of cream cheese. Simmer at low to medium heat.
Add four finely minced garlic cloves.
Slowly add one and a quarter cups of parmesan cheese. You want to prevent clumping, so add a little bit, allow it to start melting in, and then add some more.
Continue simmering at low heat for about fifteen minutes.
Pour over pasta, and enjoy.
Cheesy Alfredo Sauce Tips
- Make sure you don’t let the sauce come to a boil. It pretty much just burns the cheese and makes the whole thing terrible.
- As with any homemade pasta sauces, it is always a good idea to at least consider making your own homemade pasta to really get the full value out of your time spent cooking.
