Alfredo Pasta


Alfredo Pasta by Britany (@lunchboxforbella)



  • 1/2 box rotini pasta (or your favorite)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1-1/2 cups grated parmesan cheese



  1. Boil pasta according to the package directions.
  2. Melt butter in a pan and add the garlic. Sauté until the garlic is soft but do not brown it.
  3. Add 1 cup of the heavy cream and bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly.
  4. Lower the heat to low and add the Parmesan cheese and stir until melted completely.
  5. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of heavy cream and turn fire off. Stir until smooth and creamy. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.
  6. Drain the pasta and combine with the alfredo sauce.

PRO TIP - when you toss your pasta in the sauce, add a little bit of the hot pasta water you cooked it in (little amounts) to help thin the sauce slightly if the sauce is too thick.
