Pasta is pretty darn boring by itself.  As Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce says, “The sauce is the boss!”  I have been eating pasta with store-bought alfredo sauce since I was a toddler. I recently realized how much junk is in it, so I decided to make my own!

Alfredo sauce is my favorite thing to put on pasta. I would choose it over any other sauce. I’ve tried many different kinds of alfredo sauce, and this is my absolute favorite.

It’s nice to be able to know every ingredient you are eating. The preservatives and chemicals that big companies put in the store-bought alfredo sauce are disgusting.

Mix it with any kind of pasta.  It’s so creamy and cheesy and delicious!

You can use this Best Alfredo Sauce Recipe for so many things. It’s fantastic on pasta, of course, but you can also use it as a sauce for chicken or instead of marinara sauce in lasagna. Lasagna with alfredo sauce is soooooo good!

You have never tasted anything quite like this alfredo sauce. If you don’t like alfredo, this will make you change your mind about it. If you like alfredo, you will never go back to store-bought alfredo ever again after trying my Best Alfredo Sauce Recipe.
