    My son, who considers himself a connoisseur of Alfredo, tells me this is better then most restaurants he has eaten it at! I also grill some chicken tenderloin & toss them in. Delicious!

    This sauce is outstanding! I lightly browned about 8 chicken tenders in a little oil and then added frozen broccoli florets, let them cook on low for about 10 minutes while a made the sauce on the side. When the sauce thickened I poured it over the chicken and broccoli and let it cook on low (covered) for about 5-8 minutes more. Better then a restaurant!

      I totally LOVE this recipe, so do my non-Keto friends! I do not add the optional nutmeg and use white pepper. I use this sauce on most meats with zoodles, spaghetti squash, broccolli, etc. So delicious!!

      This recipe is fantastic!! I double the recipe and put the remainder in a mason jar in the refrigerator. And take out a spoonful at a time and put it over steamed vegetables, baked and air fried chicken. Thank you for all your wonderful recipes!!!

    Just prepared the amazing Chicken Alfredo with Spaghetti Squash for dinner. It was a huge success and totally delicious. The squash was 4lbs, so I made a double recipe of chicken and sauce since my partner is a sauce fan. Did not have fresh parmesan cheese, so I used kraft in a jar.
    My first time to bake chicken at 450 degrees. It was juicy, tender and seasoned to perfection.
    We have leftovers for tomorrow. (A blessing in disguise.)
    Thank you so much for sharing your recipes.

    Made this Alfredo sauce for the first time and I love it. Really easy to make and even my super-picky daughter who found some of my leftovers is loving it!

      Hi Kathy, Unfortunately in this recipe there aren’t any great dairy-free substitutes.

    Tried using cream cheese as a thickener, and while it worked, I agree it does change the flavor. Sticking with parmesan next time for sure!

    Decided to make this alfredo sauce and tried it with some grilled shrimp skewers. The flavors were fantastic together. It was so simple to make but definitely better than store-bought brands. Homemade is always best!

    This alfredo sauce recipe is my new holy grail sauce! It’s creamy, flavorful, and very versatile! I swapped out the heavy cream for half-and-half, and it still had a rich texture. The sauce coated the pasta beautifully, and the flavor was rich without being overpowering.

    This homemade alfredo sauce is so rich and creamy. I poured it over in fettuccine noodles and it’s better than any restaurant version I’ve had. I’m impressed!

    So delicious and so easy! And to make a super quick meal of it, I thawed some frozen shrimp and tossed those in the sauce. I did opt out of the nutmeg. I’ll definitely be using this sauce on other proteins, too. For my meal, I added about 90 grams of shrimp. In order to have even portions for keto meals, I poured the finished sauce into a large glass measuring cup then split it evenly between 4 containers. (For me, it made a total of 1-1/3 c., and I filled each container with 1/3 cup.) I will say that it doesn’t maintain its original, creamy consistency once reheated in the microwave, but with a lot of stirring, it comes close. Still amazingly delish, though! Thanks for another great recipe, Maya!

    IT SEEMS TO ME THE GREEN CAN GRATED PARM WOULD CLUMP UP AND NOT MELT – BUT THE RECIPE DOESN’T SPECIFY FRESH OR IF THE CANNED STUFF IS OK TO USE, THOUGHTS?

    This was absolutely delicious. I didn’t notice the sauté the garlic in the butter before adding the cream so I just added it as my cream and butter were starting to heat up and I also added about a 1/3 cup of Parmesan because it seemed a little runny at first but that made it perfect.

    Wow this was the best Alfredo sauce I have ever had. It was better than restaurant versions. It was thick and creamy and flavorful. And best of all it was so easy to make. WhenI ate it I felt like I was cheating my diet. But its all natural ingredients and it keeps to the Keto rules. I LOVED THIS RECIPE.

      Hi Claudia, Sorry this recipe didn’t turn out as expected. A tip I have to help get a creamy sauce is to reduce heat and gradually whisk in parmesan cheese until smooth.

    The absolute best alfredo sauce I’ve ever had and surprisingly my gives it a 5 star as well. I’ve made it twice once with egg wraps cut into strips and again with some angel hair that we wanted to use up. This is recipe #2 of yours and we loved both! I was just looking at your white pizza with chicken crust. I’ll let you know how it turns out – fabulous I’m sure.

    Absolutely fabulous! I had some egg wraps that I rolled up and cust into noodles. Just dropped them in the sauce to warm and with the addition of chicken and a vegetable we had a wonderful meal.

    Hi. Just made this to go with some chicken and vegetables. I thought I had low carb fettuccine, but didn’t…so I’m going to add some palm hearts rice and throw this on top. Making it to travel where there are no low carb options. One question: the salt, pepper and nutmeg, it would be nice to have a starting point. I know it’s to taste, but how much to start? 1/2 tsp? 1 tsp?
    Thanks for the recipe!!

    Used fresh Parmesan (my cuisinart grates it in a breeze) and added it to the cream. Salt pepper nutmeg with the butter and garlic! This was quick and easy! And by far better than store bought!!! Thank you

    The recipe is very good, but I will make one major change to it. I will be using the freshly ground Parmesan cheese from the store deli. There’s no way that I will use the Parmesan cheese in the green can. Yes,I realize that in many areas, that is all that is available. I made this last year, and it was perfect. And, surprise (!), my adult son likes it too. He also does not like the sauce that comes in a jar ( any brand ) either. I also will get the garlic crusher gadget; it looks very much like the kind that you mix pie crust mix up with, except you can rock it back & forth to chop the garlic. It’s going to be a lot easier for me to do that than to have to squeeze the garlic. Will let you all know if that thing does the job. Thank You, Maya, for posting this recipe.

    This recipe for Alfredo sauce is so decadent and good!!! I browned up some diced chicken breast and cauliflower and enjoyed a wonderful treat. Hubby who usually makes faces at keto kept sneaking into the kitchen for just one more taste. Thank you!

    I liked this recipe a lot because it’s versatile and easy. I made it again this evening and folded it over sautéed sliced mushrooms, red pepper chunks and spiraled zucchini noodles. I could have folded in my cooked cooked shrimp – or even cooked chicken – but wasn’t sure the shrimp and mushrooms would go well together. Still, it was delicious, filling and very colorful.

    This is super yummy! and was very easy to make. When I reheat the sauce turns into what looks like butter or just oil? What have I done wrong? I’m not much of a cook!

      Hi Elise, I’m glad you liked it! This sauce needs to be mixed well and stirred frequently when being reheated. It sounds like your heat might have been too high or you didn’t stir it enough. Hope this helps!

    Neumans Alfredo Sauce contains 3 grams of carbs and 90 calories per 1/4 cup serving. 2.9 grams of carbs plus 261 calories per serving is alot of calories.

      Hi Danielke, My sauce is made with better ingredients with no gums or artificial flavor or colors compared to store-bought brands but it’s a personal choice as to what you want to consume.

    This was delicious, even though my sauce split because I had the heat on too high. Note that If you use a large frying pan, the sauce will thicken faster. The recipe also scales down easily. I made it for one portion.

    I eat mine with a poached egg on top, it really adds to the taste.

        This is very close to the way I make Alfredo. Rich and decadent. I add cream cheese to mine as it helps thicken it and it reduces the chance of it breaking when reheated. Just found your chicken crust pizza can’t wait to try it.
