Ingredients

Alfredo pasta sauce
  • 80 gram butter
  • 300 millilitre cream
  • 1/2 cup (40g) finely grated parmesan

Method

Alfredo pasta sauce
  • 1
    Melt butter in medium frying pan. Add cream; bring to a boil then reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until sauce reduces by half.
  • 2
    Add cheese; stir over low heat about 2 minutes or until cheese melts.

Notes

Use light thickened cream for a lower-fat version. Parmigiano reggiano, a salty, sharp, aged cheese, is best used in this recipe, and is available at most delicatessens. Do not reduce the cream mixture too rapidly or by too much as this sauce can burn.
