I’ve always been a HUGE fan of pasta with alfredo sauce. While pasta is long forgotten, unless of course it is a low carb version, alfredo sauce is something we can still go to town on! I searched long and hard for a good keto version and none of the recipes I found quite fit the bill. I decided to take a few recipes and combine them, alter them if you will to fit our tastes. This is what we came up with!
- 1/4 Cup Unsalted Butter
- 1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1 Tablespoon Crushed Garlic
- 2 Ounces Cream Cheese
- 1 Cup Shaved Parmesan
- 1/8 Teaspoon Salt
- 1/8 Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
- 1/8 Teaspoon White Pepper
These measurements are purely suggestions and I encourage you to add or take away ingredients to meet your preferences.
Step 1: Melt butter in a saucepan and add crushed garlic to the melted butter. Cook garlic until lightly browned, but not burnt!
Step 2: Add the heavy cream and cream cheese and cook until the cream cheese is melted and well combined.
Step 3: Slowly add the shaved Parmesan (I have found that shaved Parmesan melts and combines best) until melted and well combined.
Step 4: Finish with the suggested spices, salt, white pepper and nutmeg.
Step 5: Cook until the sauce has thickened and serve immediately.
Step 6: Enjoy!
