Thick, savory, and so decadent you won’t be able to stop yourself from going back for more. That’s how we like to describe this keto alfredo sauce. For this recipe you just need cream, cheese, and a few spices to make the ultimate pasta sauce that can be prepared in no time.
Often, thick cheesy sauces are made using flour and butter to make a roux. However, this recipe completely bypasses this process, which makes it easier to cook, and low-carb friendly. This sauce thickens naturally when the cream and cheese combines—just make sure to cook it down until the cheese is fully melted into the cream.
To make the sauce extremely rich and decadent, we like to add a little extra butter—about 2 tablespoons. Not only does this stop the sauce from becoming too thick, but it adds a delicious buttery flavor that goes so well with the cheesy sauce.
How you flavor your alfredo sauce is completely up to you. One of our favorite ways, of course, is to add garlic. The classic herb simply tastes good with everything and adds depth to the flavor of the sauce.
We also like to add nutmeg to our sauce, however, this is totally optional. Nutmeg is the secret ingredient to a good alfredo sauce, as it adds a warmth that counterbalances the cheese and garlic. While you don’t have to add it to make a great alfredo sauce, we believe it takes the flavor to a whole new level.
