The Best Alfredo Sauce

The key here is to use 35% whipping cream, good white wine, good parmesan cheese and stir the sides CONSTANTLY. This recipe is SO SO SO easy and simple. When using it for pasta, I add steamed broccoli and diced roma tomatoes in it. AWESOME!

1 clove of garlic
1/2 cup of white wine
500 ml of 35% whipping cream
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
A pinch of nutmeg
Salt and Pepper to taste

Put the garlic and wine into a warm frying pan (med) and let the wine reduce. The garlic should be softened by then but not brown. Slowly add the whipping cream and nutmeg, stirring constantly. It will thinken around the edges of the pan so use a spatula to scrape it. Keep it on a slow boil until you notice it thicken to the consistency you would want to eat the sauce at and add the parmesan cheese.

Hint: I usually I put the pasta in the boiling water at the same time as add the cream and they tend to finish around the same time.
