Adria's Easy Alfredo

Alfredo pasta/pizza is my hands down favorite. Luckily I have a very easy Alfredo recipe. It's really too easy! I make it so often! What you need;

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon rosemary
5 cloves fresh garlic
3/4 cups Heavy Cream (or half and half)
2 tablespoons cheese (we will talk more about your cheese options!)

First finely chop your rosemary and garlic. Add it to your olive oil and brown on medium heat, about 5 minutes, stirring to keep it from sticking to the pan or burning.

Add your heavy cream or half and half.

Next add your cheese. I normally use parmesan cheese, but you use anything you love that melts down easily. I have also used mozzarella as well as Gorgonzola, which is strong but very yummy!

Stir while the cheese melts down and the sauce thickens up, about 15 minutes. If you are using it for pizza, at this point it is ready. If you are using it on pasta or over chicken, turn the heat down to as low as possible and let it continue to thicken, another 15 minutes. I'll usually cook my pasta as I wait for it to thicken up. But see, so easy! And very flavorful!

Last year one of my resolutions was to find the best thin crust recipe, and I found one! My favorite thin crust recipe can be found here, just make sure to not let it rise for more then 30 minutes! But usually it's nice and thin and wonderful!

Must have tools for making Alfredo;

A garlic peeler;

If you don't have a garlic peeler, I don't know how you have survived without one! They are such a delight! I use garlic so frequently and if you are going to use garlic at all it MUST BE FRESH. Please don't buy the pre-chopped stuff. Fresh is so much better, trust me. But, I understand, using fresh means you have to peel them. But with this, you just roll it and it rolls the peel off for you. You can buy them for $7.74 off Amazon.

And next, a chopper, again, I don't know how you have survived without one! These make any dicing a breeze!
