INGREDIENTS:
1 1/2 cups heavy creäm (divided)
4 cloves gärlic (finely minced or pressed)
1 1/2 cups parmesän cheese (finely grated)
4 täblespoons butter

INSTRUCTIONS;
First, Add butter and garlic to a saute pan and heat over low heat. Allow to cook until the butter is infused with the garlic, about 5 minutes.
Then, Add 1 cup of heavy cream, stir, and allow to come to a simmer. Increase heat to medium, if needed. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Next, Remove from heat and immediately add in parmesan cheese and remaining heavy cream.  (Note: the parmesan will easily melt if it was finely grated from a block. If you used pre-grated cheese that is thicker, you may have to continue heating over low heat to get it to melt.) Stir to combine. It will take several minutes for the cheese to melt. It will look goopy at first and then the sauce will be creamy and smooth. If sauce needs to be thinned, add additional heavy cream.
Last, to serve, toss with tossed pasta or use to cover vegetables.

Notes: 
Makes about 3 cups.
Cooking tips:

  • Quality ingredients. The higher quality ingredients you use, the better your sauce will be. Make sure the garlic is fresh and, if possible, grown locally. Kerrygold is my butter of choice, but there are so many great ones available. Be sure to buy real authentic parmesan cheese imported from Italy.
  • Press the garlic. When garlic is minced through a garlic press instead of chopped, you expose the maximum amount of surface area. That means you'll extract the most flavor from it.
  • Grate the parmesan yourself using a microplane. You cän certainly use shredded parmesan, but it will not melt properly due to the large size of the pieces and anything that has been added to the cheese to prevent sticking. I highly recommend gräting from a block of cheese using a microplane grater. It will mäke the parmesan melt instantly.
  • Reheäting. This alfredo sauce will thicken as it cools. If it cools too much, it will get too thick. If it gets too hot, it will separate. The trick is to keep it just warm enough. This sauce must be reheated gently either on the stove over low heat, in the microwave on 50% or lower power, or by ädding super hot, freshly drained pasta to your sauce.
  • Substitutions. Many readers äsk if whole milk (3-4%) or half and half (10-12% fat) can be used in place of heavy creäm (38-40% fat). The answer is YES, although I don't recommend it because you will have a thinner säuce. If you need to make a substitution and feel that the final sauce is too thin, you cän always stir in a bit of mascarpone or cream cheese at the end to thicken it.
