Friday’s Flavor: Chicken & broccoli with homemade garlic alfredo sauce


Author: Cassie Stevens

I’m a big fan of a great creamy Alfredo sauce, or just about anything with pasta. I had never made my own Alfredo sauce before now. I will tell you I will never buy another store bought jar again.  I loved it, and so did my husband.  My husband is a “picky” eater and he is lactose intolerant. He is not a big fan of Alfredo sauce but he still eats it.  This recipe for homemade Alfredo sauce is super easy and simple.

1/4 cup butter

1 cup heavy cream

4-5 cloves garlic, crushed

1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Melt the butter in a sauce pan, add the garlic, once the garlic is fragrant add the cream and the cheese parsley and I also added black pepper. Mix with a whisk to incorporate the cheese. Once the cheese is melted add the chicken then the broccoli and serve over Bowtie pasta with Garlic toast. Viola! Homemade Alfredo sauce.
