Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce - An easy, no-fuss dish you can make right at home. It’s also cheaper, healthier and quicker than ordering out!

I woke up one morning with a huge craving for alfredo sauce. I don’t know what it was but I just had to have it right then and there. But delivery was going to take over an hour and Olive Garden was about 45 minutes away. And I just couldn’t wait that long.

At that point, I was almost even tempted to buy those jarred alfredo sauces. Yes, I just wanted it that badly. I know. Shameful.

But after perusing through my pantry, I realized that I had all the ingredients to make the Olive Garden alfredo sauce right at home. And surprisingly enough, it came together in just 15 minutes from start to finish. It couldn’t be easier!

And as always, the homemade version really knocked it out of the park. I was thoroughly satisfied, as I devoured about 3 servings of these. Then I ran 4 miles. It’s all about that balance, right?

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces fettuccine
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup whole milk, or more, to taste
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 large egg yolk, beaten
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions:

  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.
  2. Combine butter, garlic, heavy cream and milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer; remove from heat and stir in Parmesan and egg yolk, whisking constantly to prevent the eggs from scrambling. If the mixture is too thick, add more milk as needed.
  3. Stir in pasta and gently toss to combine; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Serve immediately, garnished with Parmesan and parsley, if desired.
