Have you seen Tik Tok’s viral Alfredo sauce video? With over 12.5 million views there’s a good chance that you have. I honestly never knew an Alfredo sauce recipe could be this easy. It always tasted so complicated to me that I just assumed it was. A few years ago I had this conversation with a friend who explained that there’s really nothing to it. She shared her recipe with me and I thought to myself “there is absolutely no way that’s it”. Guess what, I was wrong. Big time wrong.

I modified that recipe a bit to suit my own taste and this is the one that I’m sharing with you today. It’s also the one that got the attention of millions on Tik Tok. Now it would be kind of impossible to get an exact number of how many people actually made it. What I do know is that I get comments daily from people who have and absolutely love it. You have to try it and see for yourself how great it is. You won’t be disappointed.

If you like this Alfredo sauce recipe I highly recommend my easy vodka sauce recipe and classic tomato sauce recipe, too. They’re just as easy and delicious as this one is.
