Making a copycat version of Olive Garden’s Alfredo sauce at home is a great way to enjoy a delicious creamy pasta dish anytime you want. Here’s a recipe to help you recreate that rich and flavorful Alfredo sauce:


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Optional: Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish


  1. Prepare Ingredients:
    • Grate the Parmesan cheese if not already grated.
    • Mince the garlic cloves.
  2. Cook the Sauce:
    • In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
    • Add the minced garlic to the melted butter and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant but not browned.
  3. Add Cream:
    • Pour in the heavy cream into the saucepan with the butter and garlic. Stir well to combine.
  4. Simmer:
    • Allow the cream mixture to simmer gently over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Let it simmer for about 5-7 minutes until it starts to thicken slightly.
  5. Add Parmesan Cheese:
    • Gradually add the grated Parmesan cheese to the sauce, stirring continuously as you add it. This helps to melt the cheese evenly and create a smooth sauce.
  6. Season:
    • Season the sauce with salt and black pepper to taste. Remember that Parmesan cheese is salty, so adjust the salt accordingly.
  7. Thicken (Optional):
    • If you prefer a thicker sauce, you can continue simmering the sauce for a few more minutes until it reaches your desired consistency. Keep in mind that the sauce will thicken slightly as it cools.
  8. Serve:
    • Once the sauce is ready, remove it from heat.
    • Serve the Alfredo sauce over cooked pasta of your choice (such as fettuccine, linguine, or spaghetti).
    • Garnish with chopped fresh parsley for added flavor and a pop of color, if desired.
  9. Enjoy:
    • Serve the creamy Copycat Olive Garden Alfredo Sauce immediately while it’s warm and creamy.

This homemade Alfredo sauce is decadently creamy and pairs perfectly with pasta, grilled chicken, or seafood. Adjust the thickness and seasoning according to your taste preferences. With this recipe, you can enjoy the delicious flavors of Olive Garden’s Alfredo sauce right in your kitchen!
