I’m very excited for this post today to share with you this crazy good and easy homemade Alfredo sauce recipe. Plus I am excited to share with your this brand new cookbook. My friends, Donna & Chad, over at The Slow Roasted Italian, recently released a stunning cookbook: The Simple Kitchen that I know will be frequently used at my home, and I know you will enjoy as well.
Easy Homemade Alfredo Sauce recipe
This easy Alfredo sauce recipe is one recipe that immediately stood out to me. Our family loves Alfredo sauce at the restaurants and with only 5 ingredients I knew I could easily make this at home.
The Simple Kitchen Cookbook has over 80 quick and easy recipes with a full-sized photo for every single recipe. They are simply beautiful! My sister was just drooling over the pictures the other day when she was here. Inside The Simple Kitchen there are 8 chapters and each chapter has over 10 tested-to-perfection recipes that are tried & true favorites. There are also tons of kitchen tricks and techniques sprinkled throughout the cookbook. It is one cookbook that I think your family will love.
The eight chapters include: Perfectly Slow Cooked, One-Pot Wonders, Dinner in a Snap!, Simple Appetizers, Sensational Soups, Simple Sides & Veggies, Everyday Kitchen Essentials, and Deliciously Simple Desserts.
This cookbook has recipes that are perfect for families on the go. They are simple recipes but they are still packed with flavor. Your family will be thinking you have been slaving in the kitchen but really…. it took very little effort. Today I’m sharing with you this easy homemade Alfredo sauce recipe. You will find the 5 ingredient Alfredo sauce recipe on page 155 in The Simple Kitchen cookbook.
