Intro: Homemade Alfredo Sauce
This Alfredo sauce is delicious and easy to make. It tastes very authentic to how Alfredo sauce should taste. We have had it with shrimp, chicken and just fettuccine noodles. We get about 2 cups of Alfredo sauce, however, you may get more or less depending on how thick you let your sauce get. We use 1 cup of sauce per 8 ounces of dry noodles.
