Alfredo sauce is a simple white sauce prepared with butter, heavy cream, garlic, and grated parmigiana. The most famous recipe with Alfredo sauce is “fettuccine Alfredo,” a popular recipe in the United States, which never gained its deserved attention in Italy, although created years ago in a famous Roman restaurant.
