Ok, so I love the Olive Garden, and how can you beat their Alfredo sauce. It makes anything and everything taste delish. This recipe is from there web site, and tastes exactly like what you would get at their restaurant at a fraction of the cost.
- 1 1/2 cup milk
- 1 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
- 1/2 cup Romano cheese, grated
- 6 egg yolks from fresh jumbo eggs
- Salt and black pepper to taste
Heat milk and cream in a heavy bottom saucepan until it begins to simmer. Turn off heat. Slowly whip in cheese, then remove from heat.
Place egg yolks in a separate bowl and slowly whip in a portion of the hot milk and cream mixture. Slowly add egg yolk mixture back into remaining cream mixture. Place back on very low heat and continually stir until simmering. Take sauce off heat so it thickens. (This will increase temperature of egg yolks, known as tempering.)
Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Serve over your favorite pasta.
