I am not sure why I hadn’t tried this before. I always bought the Alfredo sauce in the jar at the grocery store. I made this sauce and it is a revelation. It tastes so delicious and rich. The best part is that it is so easy to make I am almost embarrassed  to share the recipe with you. You could add chicken for more protein or eat exactly the way I made it. I used tagliatelle pasta. I kind of wished I used fettuccine. I think the photo would have looked better with the fettuccine noodles instead.

But I digress.

You can use any pasta you like with this sauce. In fact there are a few white wines you could choose too. What I wouldnt suggest is using a cooking wine. They are full of added preservatives and just are not good at all. You should get a wine that you would drink. The best part is that this recipe uses only 1/2 a cup. The rest you can enjoy with dinner.
