Traditional Alfredo Sauce

Traditional Alfredo Sauce

Traditional Alfredo Sauce.  This luxurious sauce is most classically referred to in conjunction with Fettuccini Alfredo.

We’ve incorporated it in our Seafood Lasagna {with Jalapeno Sauce}.  In that case we simply added finely diced jalapeno to the butter and sautéed for a few minutes before adding cream.  It’s delicious.
