This is an extremely easy and fast alfredo sauce! This recipe has less fat than most alfredo recipes by using half and half, small amounts of butter and cheese, and you can’t even tell the difference! It is so much better than a jarred sauce! We added grilled chicken to ours but you could add shrimp, italian sausage, veggies, anything you like!!
