Alfredo sauce is among the most well-known sauce recipes. The majority of people from the western world have tried more than once.
The initial versions of alfredo sauce required only eggs butter, Parmesan cheese, butter, and pasta.
As time passed the recipe was able to be modified to fit the tastes of people with different diets and preferences. A lot of chefs started adding heavy cream as well as other types of cheese.
Why Make Alfredo Sauce Without Heavy Cream?
Sometimes, heavy cream is too heavy for certain people due to its rich in fat. One of the simplest methods to cut down on the fat content in the making of this recipe would be to replace the heavy cream with a white sauce called a white roux.
This is how you can create a White Roux Sauce:
- Make sure to add 1 cup of butter that has been melted in a pan ( I’m personally in love with this pan purchased from Amazon). The additional butter makes the sauce extremely creamy and delicious, without the need for heavy cream.
- Mix the butter with equal amounts of wheat flour, and cook until it becomes a smooth paste.
- Include half of a liter of liquid milk. We prefer full-fat milk.
- Include the cheese. We use mozzarella and parmesan cheese.
Different Variations Of Alfredo Sauce
- Make use of cornstarch and milk to replace thick cream – The result is similar in flavor and you’ll get less fat-laden sauce with lots of creaminess and texture.
- Add sauteed onion to give depth to vegetable alfredo sauce Sauté some onions (whatever kind you like) Sauteed onions. Cook the sauce alfredo in the same pan as cooking the onion. If you want a sweeter sauce you could make caramelized onions as well.
- Incorporate herbs into your sauce Don’t overlook the chance to experiment with different aromatic herbs in your sauce alfredo to give it additional taste as well as depth. Coriander, parsley rosemary, and parsley are great choices.
- Include sauteed chicken for an alfredo sauce that is more filling Sauté pieces of chicken in white wine and butter. The alfredo sauce can be cooked in the same sauce using the exact pan in which you cooked the chicken.
Making Alfredo Sauce With Milk (No Heavy Cream)
Gather the ingredients.
Set the stove on low heat, put the butter into the pot, and stir using a spoon until it melts.
Once the butter is melted then add the sifted flour. If there isn’t a strainer you can use a strainer. I recently purchased the perforated strainer. It’s well for draining large amounts of noodles!
Mix with an electric mixer until a paste-like consistency is achieved.
Then add the 1st cup of milk liquid.
Mix well until the lumps are gone and the flour has been incorporated together along with the milk and butter. You may add another cup of milk when you stir.
While stirring, add the mozzarella grated as well as Parmesan cheese. Continue to whisk until the lumps of mozzarella are also gone. Include the oregano, and stir for five minutes or until the sauce thickens.
Once the sauce has reached the desired creamy texture, you can shut it off and allow it to rest for a while before making the pasta (or whatever noodles you want to cook).
Serve when it’s still hot! Also, sprinkle some parmesan cheese or parsley, along with the salt or pepper you like. Create Pinterest Pin
