White Wine Alfredo

FALL is here ya’ll! That means a couple of things… Parties are imminent (hurray for holidays and potlucks!) and my belly is about to be filled with pasta. I don’t know what it is about cooler temperatures but it always has me craving those classic comfort foods like macaroni and cheese or spaghetti. Pasta dishes also happen to be some of the easiest recipes to take to all of our social gatherings AND are freezer friendly. Hard to pass up, am I right?

White Wine and Pasta

But the plan here was to step outside of my comfort zone and get a little crazy. I was looking for a super easy recipe I could make for a dinner party and all of the magic started with pasta. I wanted the cheese sauce to seep into the pasta giving you a perfect bite every time and what better way to achieve that than with Penne Pasta??

White Wine Alfredo Ingredients:

  • Pasta
  • Heavy cream
  • White win
  • Butter
  • Garlic
  • Parmesan 
  • Salt and pepper
Barilla Penne

The perfectly cooked pasta (I followed the box directions) is coated in a smooth, rich, and creamy sauce that has just the right amount of Parmesan cheese! With under 6 ingredients it is really hard to believe how much flavor hits your mouth with that very first bite. Sipping on the Chardonnay adds to the experience and will have your dinner guests swooning.

How to make white wine alfredo:

  1. Cook your pasta according to the package, drain and set aside.
  2. Melt the butter in a large pot. Once the butter is melted add the garlic and cook 1 minute. Stir in the cream and wine. Cook 2-3 minutes stirring to avoid the milk from burning.
  3. Add the pasta and Parmesan and stir until cheese is melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

What to serve with alfredo:

  • Shrimp
  • Parmesan chicken
  • Roasted vegetables
  • Sliced sausage
  • Side salad

This recipe is horrible. Unless, of course, you like clumped up parmesan cheese in a cream soup.

You clearly missed some vital step to get it to blend and actually turn into sauce..

Hi Brian. I always appreciate feedback. However, I've made this recipe dozens of times with no issues at all. Did you use fresh parmesan or was it pre shredded? The pre shredded won't mix as well as it contains additives.
