Alfredo, anyone? It has to be one of my favorite sauces on the planet, so I thought I would share an awesome recipe with you this morning. My friend shared this with me some years back and it has become one of my family's favorite dishes. It helps create a meal that is soooo easy, but looks expensive and difficult to make. I love recipes like that! It's a good one to impress your guests! It's so good that you may even be able to buy friends with it...
Alfredo Sauce a la Marsha:
- 1 pint heavy cream
- 1 stick butter (not margarine)
- 1 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
- Coarse ground pepper
Melt butter in medium sauce pan over medium heat. Add cream, stirring continuously (so it doesn't scorch) until hot. Add cheese, stirring until completely melted and sauce is smooth. Remove from heat and salt and pepper to taste. Serve over favorite pasta (ours is penne).
I like to make several toppings to complete the meal, but the sauce is so good that you can eat it alone on the pasta. We like to add some fried ham, grilled chicken, sauteed asparagus, and/or sauteed mushrooms to ours depending on what's in our refrigerator. Don't forget the garlic bread!
