Butter, cream, cheese, are all part of this beloved classic sauce. The interpretations can vary widely, somewhere between bland and flat to overly salty and processed tasting due to fillers in place of real cream. I avoid ordering Alfredo in restaurants for that reason, never knowing which side of the spectrum to expect. I like this recipe for its accents of garlic, lemon, and mix of Parmesan and Romano cheeses. Remarkably easy to prepare at home, this simple sauce creates the perfect canvas for all sorts of enhancements like Cedar Plank Grilled Chicken (as shown), Blackened Salmon, sautéed shrimp, or roasted vegetables.
