Recipe: Philly Alfredo Sauce

This recipe for Philly Alfredo Sauce is a quick an easy variation on an Alfredo Sauce. I had heard about the recipe from the folks at Philadelphia Cream Cheese and wanted to try it. I’m always open to trying new things… the sauce was actually very good.

I have made a low fat version before… I posted that recipe a couple of years ago… Slimmed Down Fettuccini Alfredo.. which is also very good.

I was making a Chicken and Broccoli Fettuccini Alfredo and didn’t want to make the Classic Alfredo ... heart stopping fat laden version… so I decided to try their sauce recipe.. glad I did!


I didn’t have a tub of whipped cream cheese (that's what the "official" recipe called for).. so I substituted a brick of cream cheese… it worked fine…

If using a brick, I would recommend you soften it first in the microwave… for instructions see my post How to Soften Cream Cheese Quickly… also use a wire whisk to whisk it smooth.

I hope you try this quick and easy Alfredo Sauce!

It was pretty good... of course not quite as good as the real thing.. but then again.. I'm not used to the richness of the real thing anymore.

Thanks for stopping by!
