I generally don’t go in for copy-cat recipes because, really, I would prefer to just go to the restaurant and order whatever it is that I want. I know it will taste like it’s supposed to, and– bonus– I don’t have to cook.
But someone pointed this out on Pinterest to the significant other in my life the other day, and he begged and pleaded and cajoled and otherwise convinced me to make it.
You can, of course, just buy a can of Alfredo sauce in the grocery store, but it’s pretty easy to make.
The one reason you don’t want to make it? Then you know what’s in it. And what’s in it will make you feel like dying, right before you actually do die.
This is a pan. This is a pan with a stick of butter in it.
This is a pan with a stick of butter, a pint of heavy cream, two tablespoons of cream cheese, and a shitload of Parmesan cheese in it.
It’s like a children’s story about clogged arteries.
I put the strainer in the dishwasher right before we made this, so the noodles had to be creatively removed from the water.
As far as the taste? Well, it’s got a stick of butter and a pint of heavy cream in it. It ain’t gonna taste like shit.
It was pretty darn good, actually.
So, you might die if you eat it, but at least you’ll die happy.
