This easy White Wine Alfredo recipe is the perfect dinner. Creamy sauce is made with heavy cream, white wine, garlic and Parmesan and paired with your favorite pasta for the ultimate weeknight dinner!
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 Alfredo Recipe
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:
- Heavy cream
- White win
- Salt and pepper
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:
Cook your pasta according to the package, drain and set aside.
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.
Add the pasta and Parmesan and stir until cheese is melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
What to serve with alfredo:
- Parmesan chicken
- Roasted vegetables
- Sliced sausage
- Side salad
